I was excited and relieved to hear about SafeKidZone. SafeKidZone turns smartphones into “personal security devices”. As I viewed their website and watched their informational videos, I kept thinking that not only is this a fantastic safety tool for kids, but for adults as well. I know I have become increasingly uneasy in mall parking lots and parking garages.
All you need to do is download the app to your phone and create your account. Should you or your child need to, they can press the panic button and text and email messages are sent out to their contact network (which would be adults that you designate) as well as the main call center. The call center and the contact network communicate. If needed, the call center then contacts the closest 911 operator and provides them with you or your child’s safety profile information, which includes a picture, description, etc. This saves a TON of time – time that is valuable in helping you or your child. SafeKidZone also allows for the GPS location of your child to be tracked. This is the next best thing to having a GPS chip placed in your child’s body!
