Are you aware that 1.3 million children disappear every year, in the United States? Law enforcement confirms that the first 48 hours are imperative for locating a missing child
Likewise, with our nation’s growing elderly population, and the prevalence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, the number of our seniors who are reported missing each year continues to rise. According to health care reports, approximately 6 in 10 dementia victims and 3 out 5 people with Alzheimer’s disease will wander from their current location often in an effort to return “home,” which in some cases is no longer their place of residence.
Are you prepared for such an emergency? Well, the Safe Surfin’ Foundation and Moose International are doing something to protect our children and elderly by providing electronic ID Systems.
“The goal of this program is to protect our children and our elderly by providing these identification systems to Moose Lodges across North America,” explains Sheriff Mike Brown, Founder of the Safe Surfin’ Foundation.
Safe Surfin’ has already contributed nearly two dozen systems to various Moose Lodges around the country and has a goal of providing two dozen more over the next six months.
The system electronically finger prints, photographs and records pertinent information about your child or senior, burns it all on a CD for you to put away for safe keeping in the case of an emergency. Should your child or senior become missing, this CD can be given to law enforcement for immediate airing on local media, radio and shared with other law enforcement agencies.
These free systems are made possible by the generous contribution of Moose International and Moose Members nationwide. For more please contact the Safe Surfin’ Foundation.
