Julie Meyer from Crazy Monkey Signs and Graphics recently came up with the idea of creating emergency contact key rings for children and wanted to get schools involved so they can show them how they work.
The main aim behind the emergency contact key rings is the safety of children.
Especially with the children being transported in shuttles, Julie who used to own her own children’s shuttle in Montclair knows first hand how the parents worry about their children.
“Lots of late night thinking went into the in case of emergency contacts most people have on their phones, so when involved in an accident, people know to search your phone for ICE contact. But lets be honest, the first thing stolen at an accident scene is your phone. Also, people have codes and locks on their phones, so how do authorities contact the family?” stated Julie.
The emergency contact key rings will contain two contact numbers and names on the back, as well as the child’s name.
The key rings can be hooked on the child’s school bag. The front of the key ring can be customized by adding the schools logo.
After the kiddy transporter accident that occurred earlier this week in Montclair, it is a sure sign that these key rings are vital as they will help the police or paramedics contact the family when the children are too traumatized and can not speak for themselves.
“Safety has always been my concern for my area, and we need to be able to protect our kids and talk for them, especially when they can not,” said Meyer.
Schools or parents wanting to find out more information on how they can order the key rings, can contact Julie Meyer on 060-335-7363 or send an email to [email protected]
