PORT ANGELES — The young children gathered at the Port Angeles Ford Lincoln Mercury dealership Saturday weren’t shopping for their first car.
They were taking part in a national program to compile identifying information for police and families to use to help children should they turn up missing.
Parents brought kindergartners through second graders to the dealership at 1527 E. Front St. on Saturday to receive free child identification kits.
The KidCare ID booklet displays two photos of the child along with full name, height, weight, date of birth and date of photo.
Port Angeles firefighter Mike DeRousie volunteered to take the photographs.
The booklet also includes safety tips, emergency information such as phone number, blood type, allergies and parents’ names.Details appear in today’s edition of the Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties. Or click onto “Subscribe” to order your copy via U.S. mail.
