The International Union of Operating Engineers has partnered with the National Child Identification Program to provide a free child ID kit to every member. These kits are a simple, yet effective way for families to store information about their children and grandchildren in case of an emergency.
The kit comes in a customized envelope with a letter indicating the IUOE is partnering with the program, it includes a card that has a space for a child’s fingerprints, as well as a current photograph and other descriptive information. If a child goes missing, this ID card is readily available to assist law enforcement officials. Families store the card in a safe place and only turn it over to law enforcement officials in the event of an emergency.
These child ID kits will be available for pick up at your monthly district meetings or your union hall. We ask that you only take one. If you need to order additional kits, please visit the National Child Identification Program’s website at: https://childidprogram.com/order-now/.
Let’s keep our children and grandchildren safe!
