In Case of Emergency Amber Alert

Posted by: | Comments (0)

In Case of Emergency, when a child goes missing, the Amber Alert system can be a life saver.  The AMBER Alert System began in Dallas-Fort Worth when broadcasters teamed with local police to develop an early warning system to help find abducted children.
AMBER stands for America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response. The acronym was created as a legacy to 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, who was kidnapped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, and then brutally murdered.
Other states and communities began setting up their own AMBER Alert plans as the idea was adopted across the Nation.

Signed into law the PROTECT Act,  comprehensively strengthened law enforcement’s ability to prevent, investigate, prosecute, and punish violent crimes committed against children.
These codes made it simpler to arrange the National Amber network, and establish guidance on criteria for issuing an Amber Alert.
The time to prepare for this type of emergency that we hope will never occur was yesterday.  In Case of Emergency when any missing person goes missing seconds and minutes count.  You should keep a current photo of all your children and immediate family members on your cell phone.  In case of emergency it is so much easier if you are prepared.  Have a photo on your phone of your loved ones insures you will be able to act immediately.
