Booth's ATA Black Belt Academy in American Fork has announced plans for a free community Child Safety Seminar scheduled for 6:00 PM to 7:30, August 16, 2013. The Open House is part of ATA Martial Arts’ worldwide initiative to help minimize the risk of child abduction through education.
With active membership exceeding 350,000 worldwide and 1,200 schools in the U.S. and abroad, ATA is positively positioned to reach children and adults with the message of abduction prevention. As part of the safety campaign, ATA has partnered with AMBER Alert.com to increase AMBER Alert notification via e-mail and personal communication devices. Once an AMBER Alert is issued, AMBER Alert.com uses state-of-the-art technology to notify its subscribers of a missing child in a specific area.
According to local ATA instructor Benjamin Booth, education is the key to child safety. “Children of all age, gender and race are vulnerable to child abduction. Through age appropriate instruction, awareness of warning signs and ID activities such as fingerprinting, collectively ATA schools around the world hope to have a significant impact on reducing the risk of child abduction and victimization”, says Mr Booth.
Attendance at the Child Safety Seminar is limited to 35 children. To register call Booth's ATA Black Belt Academy at 801-341-2010 before August 8th. The event will be held at Booth's ATA Black Belt Academy location at 449 E 200 S, American Fork, UT, 84003.
