Abduction Prevention Program Available for Kids

BRADENTON, FL - September 02, 2014

To arm children and their parents with knowledge and techniques to avoid or escape abduction, Manasota Memorial Park and Funeral Home in Bradenton is offering  to conduct the Dignity Memorial® Escape School® program to the community. Call 941-755-2688 for more information and to request the presentation be made for your organization or school.


Presented in an entertaining and non-threatening manner, this FREE program teaches children ages 6-12 how to differentiate between good and bad strangers, the common lures abductors use, how to "get away, right away" and how to find help when needed. In addition to teaching key concepts, presenters engage children in demonstrations featuring several simple yet highly effective techniques for escaping dangerous situations.


Child abduction is often a difficult topic for many parents to discuss with their children, yet it is a frightening reality in communities today. The Dignity Memorial Escape School program, conducted by trained Dignity Memorial funeral care professionals, is designed so that children can learn life-saving techniques and begin this important dialogue with their parents.


Since the program's inception in 1996, Dignity Memorial Escape School has been presented to more than five million families across the United States and Canada. Several children and one adult have credited the program with saving their lives.
