When a child goes missing or is critically injured, a parent’s ability to recall basic facts about her child can be compromised by overwhelming stress. For this reason, AmberAlert.com, a privately-held company focused on providing programs to help keep children and families safe, has introduced the My Child ID™ — the first comprehensive, digital child identification device that stores critical data to help in instances of a missing child, critical injury, or abduction cases.
“The first three hours a child is missing are the most critical for their safe return. Understandably, parents can become hysterical in an emergency situation,” said Harlan Lyons, CEO of AmberAlert.com. “My Child ID is a proactive tool for parents, law enforcement and emergency responders to safeguard children by helping to reduce the time it takes to gather accurate information when time is critical.”
My Child ID stores vital information including:
- Recent digital photos
- Vital statistics
- Emergency contact information
- Medical information
- Contact information for family and friends
My Child ID is supported online at www.AmberAlert.com where information can be securely backed up. Software updates and a Private Alerting feature are also available on the online portal. Private Alerting is a service that allows parents to send text messages and/or e-mails to their entire network of trusted contacts using the same alerting technology AmberAlert.com developed to disseminate AMBER™ Alerts through the Law Enforcement Alerting Portal (LEAP). The back up and Private Alerting features are free for one year after account activation.
My Child ID is now available at select retailers and online at www.AmberAlert.com and retails for $39.95. Pricing includes one year of online back up and Private Alerting. For more information about AmberAlert.com visit www.AmberAlert.com or call 602-889-7256.
