Operation Kidsafe Fair kicks off

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Operation Kidsafe held it's safety fair this afternoon at Kia of Augusta on Gordon Highway.

The event allowed parents to get a lifetime record of their children's digital fingerprints and a form for law enforcement agencies to have in case of an emergency.

People also received safety tips from local law enforcement on how to keep their kids safe.

Wayne Petro, director of Operation Kidsafe, says it's essential parents get their children fingerprinted.

"It takes one minute. You know parents always make sure they have soda in the fridge and cat food in the bowl, do this for your child. It's a very smart thing to do and it only takes a few minutes out of your life," Petro says.

The fair continues tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the same location.
