Safe Kids Identification Kit


In today's society, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep our children safe. There is now information available to help you express to your children the ways to keep them protected. A community service program sponsored by First Alert Professional & B-Safe in conjunction with the National Crime Prevention Council is offering a booklet entitled, "McGruff Safe Kids Identification Kit, A Fun Way to Family Safety." In an entertaining manner that kids can understand, this booklet presents some life-saving information.

Click here to obtain this booklet along with a free home safety and security evaluation.

The booklet contains a valuable personal identification section, complete with a fingerprinting kit, to help you keep an up-to-date file on your child. It also contains many valuable points that will help you to teach your kids how to prevent trouble from occurring. Since the McGruff character is one that many children are familiar with, they should accept the information contained in the booklet without becoming frightened.

Here are a few points mentioned in the booklet:

 

  • Walk with your children to school or the bus stop.
  • Point out areas that might not be safe. Play a game called "What If" by using pretend situations to help them decide how to react in a real emergency. Show them which houses they should go to if they need help.
  • Don't let your children go to a shopping center by themselves.
  • Your children should avoid public restrooms unless they are with a trusted adult. If your children should become lost inside a store or shopping center, tell them to go to a nearby clerk or security guard for help.
  • It's best not to let your children wear clothing or carry articles with their names on them.
  • A stranger may pretend to know them by calling their name and acting like a friend.
