On Saturday, Oct. 12, Fenton Masonic Lodge 109 will provide a free child identification program, available from 12 to 3 p.m., at the Fenton Fire Department open house.
Each child that goes through the Child ID process will receive a dental impression kit as well as a flash drive containing a photo, video, digital fingerprints and their vital information.
Parents or legal guardians of children who participate must be present and fill out a permission slip for the child to receive this service. Children who have already received the service are encouraged to repeat the process every two years to keep the information in the completed packets current.
The Michigan Child Identification Program provides the family with everything needed for the Amber Alert System. Over 93,000 Michigan children have received this valuable service. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children considers the Michigan Child Identification Program to be one of the most comprehensive of its kind.
For more information, call 800-321-9357 or go to michiganchildid.org. The Fenton Fire Department is at 205 E. Caroline St.
