Safe Child ID Program

related issues:

Statistics show that 34% of parents in the United States don’t know their child’s exact height, weight and eye color.  When a child is reported missing, time can be the greatest adversary.  Possessing up-to-date photos and important information about one’s child are important proactive measures a parent can take to assist law enforcement should a child disappear.

Every day, at least one Long Islander dies from an opiate overdose.  And those are only the ones we know of - the ones directly caused by Heroin or prescription painkillers such as Percoset or Oxycodone.  About 7 out of 10 died at home.  If you don't think it can happen to someone you care about, please think again.  Overdoses can happen to everyone.
