Safe Child ID program at Tug Boat Roundup 2016

WFD will be hosting the Saratoga County  SafeChild ID program at Lock 2 on Saturday.

Parent or Legal Guardian is required to be present with  children.

Lock 2 area
Waterford Fire Department as part of its' Community Outreach campaign will be hosting two
Safe Child ID events in the community.These are based on a first come,first serve basis.There is
no charge or fee.A parent or Guardian is required to be present during the session.

Saturday September 10th at Lock 2, WFD Fire Prevention Booth from 11am til 3pm. Tug Boat Roundup 2016
Wednesday October 12th ,from6pm to 9pm , Ford Hose Company Stn 2, 68 Division St,Waterford NY

The main purpose of the program is to capture identifying information about your child on a SAFE CHILD card.
The same information is stored in a statewide database. The storage of this information is entirely voluntary
and requires the written consent of a parent or legal guardian.

In addition to quickly providing important details to police agencies investigating child disappearances, the
SAFE CHILD card can be used in conjunction with the NYS AMBER Alert and Missing Child Alert programs.
If a child goes missing, the SAFE CHILD program allows their information to be electronically disseminated
within minutes, significantly increasing the possibility of bringing a missing child home.

The information is stored in a database at the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).
When DCJS receives a missing child report, the fingerprints of that child are compared against all 
incoming fingerprints submitted to DCJS. A parent or lawful guardian can request that the information 
be purged from the database at any time. When a child turns 18, the fingerprints are automatically purged from the database.

of progress made in many areas behind the scenes and Firematically.As with every Fire Chief before him, senior officers have a responsibility to groom and prepare
the future line and Chiefs offers who come after him. A special thanks to his family for letting us take up some of his time away from his family and friends
to fulfill his duties as Chief Of Department.
