    Child ID kit available to parents:

    The National Child Identification Program has developed a child ID kit that is now available to all parents. Created by the American Football Coaches Association and endorsed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the kit allows parents to record and store vital information that can be used to identify children in case of  an emergency. Each Child ID kit contains the tools necessary for parents to record and store vital information on each child including photographs, fingerprints, identifying marks and DNA.  All the information can be privately collected and stored in the home so that information necessary for law enforcement is readily available in the case of an emergency.  To order kit:
