I worry about my children or those under my care getting lost at large events. Do you have suggestions?

We want parents/caregivers to always watch their children or those individuals under their care and be in attendance the entire time the children/individuals are at our events. To help parents and caregivers, we are offering a Family Tracker wristband system to reunite lost children/individuals with their parents/caregivers. Parents/caregivers just sign up providing a cell phone number, a special wristband is placed on the child/individual’s wrist and, if they get lost, the parent/caregiver goes to the Family Tracker booth for help. Additionally, children/individuals find themselves lost, they can approach the event staff, a police officer or fireman, and the system will be used to contact the parents/caregivers.

The City of Peoria is looking for organizations interested in volunteering during this event. Groups should be available between 4 pm and 11 pm on July 4. For more detailed information on how your organization can participate, please contact Bill Moss at william.moss@peoriaaz.gov.
