Safety Identification Program To Protect Children
August has been designated as Child Protection Month by the Prime Kids Learning Center, which is located inside Prime Inc., a leading international refrigerated, flatbed and liquid bulk truckload carrier headquartered in Springfield, Missouri.
The company's Security Department will be providing fingerprinting and taking DNA samples of associates' children. Parents will receive a kit, which can be updated annually or as necessary, containing their child's fingerprints. The packet will also feature a slot for a current photo of their child, as well as a place to record the child's height, weight and any identifiable markings or unique physical traits.
Instructors at the Prime Kids Learning Center will be discussing basic but vital safety issues with each class on an age appropriate level. A few of the topics include teaching children to know their parents names as well as phone numbers and addresses, when and how to dial 911, dealing with strangers and stranger anxiety. "You can never be too careful," says Kristal Glenn, Director of the Learning Center. "This program is intended to help parents protect their children by having important information readily available in case of an emergency."
