|The New York Masonic
Safety Identification Program events provide a FREE packet of information
for families to turn over to the authorities should a family member go
missing. The program is used for all age groups, including children, students,
The free packet includes
a CD with fingerprints, photographs, unique physical description and more.
An ID card is also included, as well as age-specific safety information
for families. Parents or guardians complete a short information form,
and from that your packet is created.
The New York Masonic
Safety Identification Program addresses the alarming fact that many children,
students, and adults are reported missing in the United States each year.
Our events generally
take place at schools, festivals, fairs, or other public events.
It is completely voluntary, and no information is kept. The family
possesses the only copy. We urge all families to keep this important,
updateable information in a safe place, and take it with you when traveling
with your children. This information can aid in the safe recovery of a
lost or missing child.
