City – Photo Opportunity?
YES. Over 450 school children and their parents
will assemble at Fernando Rivera School Gym on
Thursday, October 24th, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.,
to learn lifesaving tips on how children ages
5 to 15 years old can avoid being abducted. The
presentation will also instruct parents what to
do if an abduction occurs, to increase the safe
return of their child. The school is located at
1255 Southgate Avenue, Daly City.
Event organizers said all available seats were
reserved two weeks ago. "Escape School"
is presented by the Daly City Police Department,
in affiliation with the Service Corporation
International (SCI) Escape School, a program designed
to give parents and children a proactive means
to combat their fears.
In observance of Make A Difference Day, the DCPD,
in partnership with the Volunteers in Daly City
program, will provide child identification
record (scanned fingerprints and photographs
on floppy disks), this Saturday, October 26,

lives of children this Saturday when they
provide DNA LifePrint kits to about 600
Daly City residents (proof of residency will be
required). This Make A Difference Day project
will be offered at two sites: at Serramonte Center
near Burger King, and at Fire Station 93 on Martin
