CHILD FIND TRUCK POSTER PROGRAM
The Mechanical Service Contractors
Association of Canada is a strong supporter of Child Findís Truck
Poster Program. This has proven to be a very successful
initiative in developing awareness about the issue of missing children.
Child Find's missing children posters are
designed to be placed on service vehicles
and/or transport trucks and are made of a vinyl material that is self -adhesive.
They are made in such a way as to not damage the paint and withstand truck
washes. There are two available sizes, one for van's and standard service vehicles,
the other is a larger version used for transport trailer sized vehicles.
This program is a significant communication tool used to recover or locate a
and they help to trigger the publicís memory. By publicizing the face of a
missing child, people are more susceptible to recognizing a missing child in
passing. In addition, these posters are the key source in generating tips
through Child Find's national toll free tip line
. This line is open 24 hours, 7 days a week
and provides a service where people can call in to document a sighting (of a
missing child) while remaining anonymous. These sightings are forwarded to
the appropriate investigating officer, in hopes of a recovery.
