6/9/2019 - Amber Alert Event

When your Teen or Child Goes Missing – Every Minute Counts in Their Safe Recovery! 
 
All too often we hear alerts for a missing child or teen. The Amber Alert Id system originated in the U.S. in 1996 as a vehicle to reach out to the public for assistance in locating missing children and teens.
 
Southbury Ambulance Association (SAA) will sponsor and host this year’s Danbury Rotary AMBER Alert ID Session at the Southbury Ambulance Association facility, 68 Georges Hill Road, Southbury, CT on Sunday June 9, 2019 between 10 am and 2 pm.  
 
The Danbury Rotary Club has teamed-up with other Rotary Clubs all across Connecticut and the Connecticut State Police AMBER Alert Center at the Department of Public Safety.  Often the Amber Alert program is associated with younger children, but any individual under the age of 18 can be registered in the AMBER Alert system. The Rotary AMBER Alert ID Program brings the latest technology to the Amber Alert System and with this new system the child’s/teen’s colored digital picture is imbedded on a wallet sized plastic card, along with minimal yet essential information. In addition to the Amber Alert ID card, the strongly encrypted identification data is maintained in the Amber Alert national database which the state police can access when a child/teen goes missing. This data is not connected to the Internet or any other system.
