Farmers Insurance Group® to Showcase m.i.l.k. Program at West Valley Safety Expo
Program Aids in Recovery of Missing Children
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Farmers Insurance Group®, will have a booth at the 8th Annual West Valley Safety Expo at the Goodyear Swap Meet, 17605 W. McDowell Road (just off I-10/ Cotton Lane Exit), showcasing Farmers’ digital child identification program called m.i.l.k (Managing Information on Lost Kids). The program is aimed at aiding in the recovery of missing children. In the event of an emergency, the m.i.l.k. Digital ID can immediately be forwarded to local authorities and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The m.i.l.k. Digital ID has been referred to as the first step in the national Amber Alert plan.
On Saturday, March 1, 2008 between 10:00am and 2:00pm Farmers Insurance agent Scott Hoppa will be giving away the m.i.l.k. digital identification kits for children, free of charge in his first-of-its-kind specially outfitted “m.i.l.k. mobile.” Hoppa has a specially designed RV featuring the m.i.l.k. program as a rolling reminder of this important cause.
“All of us at Farmers are committed to family safety, and want to do our part to keep children as safe as possible,” said Scott Hoppa. “We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to provide this service to our community. Protecting our children is very important to me. This is one way parents can better protect their kids, and it’s hard to miss! It’s a 36 foot reminder of my commitment to keeping the kids in this community safe.”
