Children to be tagged for their own safety in Murcia

Children to be tagged for their own safety
CROWDS: Annual Three Kings Parade attracts thousands of visitors

MIRRORING an initiative that was employed on a number of beaches during the busy summer season, the city of Murcia will be distributing 1,000 identity bracelets to children to prevent them getting lost during the Three Kings festivities.

A similar scheme was also put into practise during the September Fair in the city and proved a popular and positive idea.
There will be space on the bracelets for the name of the wearer and a contact telephone number of the parents or guardians just in case they get lost or become detached from them during the busy parade that takes place on Friday evening, January 5.

There is expected to be the usual influx of people from near and far and previous experience has shown that it’s very easy for children to get caught up in the excitement of the event and unintentionally get separated from their companions.

The ID tags can be picked up from two dedicated distribution points run by members of the Civil Protection – on the Santo Domingo and in the Glorieta de España next to Calle Arenal – and will be open one hour before the parade starts and will remain open for the duration.
