FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Operation Kidsafe kicked off Wednesday at Summit City Chevrolet.

Hundreds of families came to the car dealership for Trunk or Treat and Operation Kidsafe, a program which helps parents get a free safety identification kit.

The kit includes a photo, and digital fingerprints that parents can provide to law enforcement instantly to help with an investigation if the child goes missing. Summit City Chevrolet organizers say child safety is a huge priority at the business.

"Anybody can bring their children by.It takes about 60 seconds to identify the kid and give them a bracelet and ID tag to keep them safe," said Summit City Chervrolet Dealer Jane DeHaven.

If you missed out on the child ID program, the event will run from noon to 5 October 19.
