If your child ever went missing, would you be able to provide authorities with necessary information?
Kearney Children's Museum partnered with the Kearney Noon and Dawn Rotary clubs to help parents take the essential preventative steps in case of an emergency.
Child identification kits provide useful personal information including photos, height and fingerprints.
Officials say information like this can prove vital if something were to happen.
"A lot of parents, they don't take a lot of pics of their kids, and, or they don't have the fingerprints from them, we're even encouraging them to get a hair sample or something like that so they've got a DNA sample for their child too," said Kearney Dawn Rotary's Tom Bosshardt. "Unfortunately the conditions we have today, there are people out there who are abducting children."
"Every day you have something in the news, so I'd rather be proactive and have the information and pray that nothing ever happens," said parent Jennifer Stauss. "But if it did, I have the vital stuff already to solve the situation."
Twenty-two children were ID'd and more than 10 signed up for appointments. Thursday's event was all part of the Kidzone's Family Fun Night.
