NEWTON, Conn. — The Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps and the Masonic Hiram Lodge in Sandy Hook is inviting families with young children to a free child protection event on Saturday, Nov. 14, reported The Newtown Bee.
The Newtown Bee said that NVAC member and Mason Chris Capozza is organizing this event, which will be held at the NVAC headquarters at 6 Washington Square.
The aim is to give parents a free Connecticut Child Identification Program purple pack for each child.
The Purple Pack includes a DVD Ram disk, which has a video of a child, a still photo, the child’s fingerprints, a dental impression, and a dental swab.
CTCHIP will generate the items, place them in a purple pack, and give them to the parent or guardian.
If a child is missing, police or other emergency responders can use the information to aid in finding and identifying the child.
For information, e-mail Capozza at firstname.lastname@example.org , call 914-482-3575, or visit ctchip.org.
