Safe Child program offered at events

There will be opportunities to register children for Operation Safe Child today and Saturday in Fulton County.

The program will be offered from 5 to 8 p.m. today at the Kids Night/Car Show at the Johnstown Pizza Hut, and from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Police, Fire & Military Appreciation event at Adirondack Harley-Davidson in Vail Mills, a news release said.

People can look for the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Team at the events, the news release said.

Registration is free. Children as young as 18 months old can participate in the program, the news release said.

Registering a child for the program helps police to immediately issue an Amber Alert in the event the child goes missing, the news release said.

Registration should be updated every two years.
