Ford Rolls Out Child Safety Program in Ford Plant Communities

Ford Rolls Out Child Safety Program in Ford Plant Communities
FLUSHING, Mich. - While Ford is typically known for its advanced safety features available in a variety of vehicles in the lineup, Ford is now rolling out a Child Safety Program in Ford Plant Communities to protect children when they are not in the vehicle.

This Child Safety Program comes in the form of inkless fingerprint ID kits (this ID kit stays with the family) that help law enforcement quickly reference children's fingerprints and other identifying information, should they go missing. These kits will be distributed to all UAW-Ford employees which puts the estimated total distribution by Ford at 225,000 kits with 50,000 kits to be donated to Detroit Public Schools.

The best part about this large distribution is that the National Identification Program has promised to donate a kit for every kit purchased by Ford for plant employees. The matching kits will be distributed throughout the communities near Ford manufacturing plants by local schools, churches and law enforcement.

The National Identification Program was created by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) in 1997 with the goal that they would create a fingerprint record of 20 million children. Since 1997, they have blasted through this goal by collecting fingerprints of over 32 million children, both nationally and internationally. This impressive number has made the National Identification Program the largest child identification effort ever made.

Ford is rolling out a Child Safety Program in Ford plant communities across the country, simply because of the fact that safety is Ford's number one priority - in and out of the vehicle.
