Operation KidsSafe will be one of the featured events at this year's Oconomowoc SummerFestival 2010 on August 14th from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM on Wisconsin Avenue in Downtown Oconomowoc.

Operation KidSafe captures a child's picture and fingerprints using a digital video capture device, digital ink-less fingerprint capture device and specialized software. The captured data is assembled and a quality 8 ½ x 11" printout is given to the parent. The parent can use the printout to provide to law enforcement anywhere in the world. No database is maintained so only the parent has this information. The Downtown Oconomowoc Merchants Association (DOMA) is organizing this event and it will be free for every child that participates.

"Keeping our kids safe is so important to all of us and that's why DOMA is organizing Operation KidSafe," said Laurel Whelan, Executive Director of the Oconomowoc Association, "We're providing this FREE service so that everyone can bring their children down and get their FREE Child Safety Kit right in their own Lake Country community. We hope everyone takes advantage of this great opportunity."

"We'd also like to thank our sponsors: First Bank Financial Centre, ProHealth Care, Isabella's Children Fashions, Cornerstone Pub & Dr. Leman, Setnicar & Piacsek, S.C.
whose support is making this FREE service possible."

There will also be many other free activities that are part of the Oconomowoc SummerFestival 2010 including: the Avenue Art Faire, Coast Guard Demonstrations, In-House Specials, Classic Car Show, Log Rolling, Specialty Food Booths, Interactive entertainment for all ages, DJ & live music on two stages and, much more.

"We're hoping to get the word out about this event so that as many families as possible will take advantage of this important opportunity," Whelan continued.
