USB Amber Alert Child ID Kit


No parent likes to think about it, but in the unlikely event that your child is abducted, quick response makes all the difference. Do you have all the updated information? Recent photos? Screen names, MySpace account details, personal blogs, medical information? Not that I want to make you feel like a bad parent-- most of us have a tattered child ID card in our wallet, but that can quickly be outdated.

Recognizing this need, Global Security Alerts paired with Kingston Technology, a supplier of memory products, to develop the AMBER Alert Child ID Kit, which stores all the information on a USB device.


It's convenient to use and update, which is the key feature, and keeps your child's profile, photos and online identity information securely in one place.

In an effort to get these in everyone's hands, Kingston Tech is encouraging communites to buy them in bulk, and providing them for free at many local events. Mike Sager, the VP of Corporate Communications, explained that “Kingston has a long history of giving back to the community whenever possible. We are thrilled that AMBER Alert is using Kingston DataTraveler USB drives to distribute Child ID Kits."

To buy one for yourself, go to their online store and pick up one for $29.95.
