Taking KidSafety to the Street

In 2005, EMCOR launched Taking KidSafety to the Street, a three-part initiative to help find missing children and promote child safety.

On the Streets

EMCOR's 7,000 service vehicles move daily from 170+ offices to 13,000 job sites throughout the United States and the United Kingdom.

In the U.S, our fleet prominently displays the National Center for Missing Children's® (NCMEC) posters.

In the U.K., the program is a partnership between the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), command of the National Crime Agency (NCA); the charity, Parents and Abducted Children Together (PACT), and EMCOR (U.K.).

In Buildings

Code Adam is activated when a child is first reported missing within a facility and prior to the arrival of law enforcement personnel. Employees who are trained in Code Adam procedures are able to respond quickly if an abduction occurs in their establishments.

At Home

Families and children can learn how to stay safer with our My Safety Tips brochure and poster, KidSafety Challenge and accompanying KidSafety Certificate.

The brochure provides kids with NCMEC's rules for child safety and Internet safety tips. Children are also invited to take the KidSafety Challenge to test their knowledge and once completed, they can print out a personalized KidSafety certificate.

Child Safety App

In 2016, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) launched Safety Central, a free child safety app available for Apple and Android devices.

The app is designed to provide parents and guardians with tools they need to help protect their families and act quickly should their child go missing. EMCOR Group sponsors the app.
