Summer is officially here for students who are out of school and looking to get into plenty of summer activities. However, this season can cause children of all ages to fall victim to an abduction and other dangerous circumstances. These type of events can happen without the presence of a parent or guardian. 

The team at Volkswagen of Marietta is presenting the Operation Kidsafe Regional Child Safety Day on Saturday, June 9th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The objective is to gear up parents for a family safety plan in the event a child is missing or in immediate danger. The free event is inviting all parents and guardians of children (ages 1 and older) to come and receive a complimentary child safety document, which includes a digital photo and a fingerprint of their child. All young attendees will be asked to go through a screening where they will have their picture taken by a professional photographer and get fingerprinted for background check purposes.

Each parent and guardian will then receive a copy of their child’s safety document to have for safekeeping. Each child's headshot and information will be on one page, including their name, date of birth, age, height, and weight to name a few. This method is a more convenient and quicker way for parents to present the safety document to their local authorities in the event their child is missing. All information about each child will be kept confidential and will not be placed in the database. First responders will be on site to help attendees in need of medical attention during the event. 

The Operation Kidsafe Regional Child Safety Day kicks off on Saturday, June 9th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Volkswagen of Marietta. The address is 1860 Cobb Parkway South, Marietta, Georgia 30060.
