It is anticipated than more than 300 IDs will be done at this event According to law enforcement officials, more than 20,000 children are reported "missing" each year in New York State alone. The Masons in New York State annually provide free Safety IDs in hundreds of locations and since the program's inception a dozen years ago, more than 425,000 children and adults have been afforded this electronic ID safety "protection." Parents are given a computer disk including name, address, parents or guardian, digital facial pictures, fingerprints and all vital personal information and pertinent physical characteristics. This mini disk can then be given to the first police on the scene to enter into the Amber Alert system should the need arise. Parents and caregivers are reminded that an ID should be updated every few years as personal characteristics change as a child grows older. The Masonic Safety ID Program will be held at Rockland's 27th Suburban Home Show at RCC's Eugene Levy Field House, 145 College Road in Suffern. Show Hours are Friday, February 7th from 3 PM - 9 PM; Saturday, February 8th from 10 AM to 8 PM; and Sunday, February 9th from 10 AM to 6 PM.
