5 Ways to Get the Most from Child Safety Kits ...

  • Safety

If you’re concerned about your child’s safety, one easy way to be prepared is to get a child safety ID. In order to get the most out of your child safety kit, here are some of the elements we recommend that your kit contain.

 

Personal Information

Include anything you would want the authorities to know about your child in the event that he or she goes missing, such as allergies and emergency contact information. Many people aren’t sure what to include in such a kit, so perhaps the best way to make sure you cover everything is to sign up for a child ID program. That way you can get a free, comprehensive kit.

 

Recent Photo

As your child grows, you will want to update your kit to make sure the photograph inside is always as recent as possible. Children change quickly, and you want your picture to be as close to real life as possible.

 

Physical Description

Photos only cover so much. Besides this, you should include information on your child’s height and weight and any identifying features like birthmarks, especially those not visible in the photograph. Try to get a photograph with decent resolution where your child’s face is clearly visible.

 

DNA Sample

The most common type of DNA sample is a hair sample. If you’re making your own kit, this is an easy sample to obtain. 

 

Fingerprints

Since fingerprints are unique to each individual, just like DNA, they are one of the most helpful identifying tools for police who are searching for missing children. Some people try to do it themselves, but it is much more convenient to take advantage of the free child ID kits. That way you can be sure of quality results.
