Toddlers to Teens...A Symposium on Child Safety.
An outreach program focused on increasing education and awareness for parents, grandparents and guardians on topics focused on child health, safety and security. CARE LINK Kids Symposiums are offered throughout the Town in partnership and with the support of the Town’s school district’s and parent teacher associations. Symposiums can be scheduled for groups and organizations by our community’s EMS providers and the Orangetown Police Department. In addition to the symposiums, a Child Safety Kit is provided. This program has also enabled kits to be sent home with elementary students in our local school districts.
The Child Safety Kit includes a home child identification kit for DNA, fingerprints and pertinent information. The Kit also includes a RESOURCE GUIDE containing beneficial information, tips and phone numbers for a variety of issues concerning child safety, health and security. 911 stickers, bookmarks, W.H.A.L.E. information (car seat safety stickers), a bicycle safety blinking reflector light, a Child Emergency Identification and Medical Treatment Consent Form, Checklist for Babysitters and Quick Reference Emergency Guide are also included.
