How to Prevent Your Child from Getting Lost
There are many safety strategies your family can use to help reduce the risk of your child getting lost or separated. When considering safety strategies to reduce the risk of children getting lost or separated from their family, it is important to keep in mind that there are differences in prevention strategies for urban and rural environments. Rural areas present different risks for children who get lost than urban communities. While many safety strategies recommended for urban centres can also be applicable to rural communities, depending on the size of the community, there are unique considerations that need to be raised for children living in rural areas. Risk factors include proximity to forests, lakes and rivers, as well as the distance between neighbours. Another important consideration is climate as, depending upon the region, it may also have serious implications if a child gets lost.
