Municipality wraps bands on wrists to locate lost kids

Municipality officials are encouraging parents to place wristbands on their children’s wrists containing make contact with particulars.

At a single of the entrance gates at Amerat Park, parents are observed hovering about a table, specifically in the course of weekends when there are considerably much more guests.

A municipality official diligently writes the mobile quantity of the parents and wraps the band about the child’s wrist.

Speaking to Muscat Daily, a municipality official on the festival grounds mentioned, “The band is created like a sticker as kids adore stickers and hand bands. If a kid is lost, our officials or even ROP officers can contact the mobile quantity written on the wristband. A two or 3 year old kid is barely in a position to speak. In such instances, it becomes tough to get the parents’ particulars.

“But why only a municipality or ROP officer, anyone who spots a lost child can do the same. Earlier, when children went astray and got lost, we had a tough time uniting them with their parents.”

Prajakta S, a mother going to the festival with her 3 year old kid, mentioned, “This is a good initiative. During weekends, when there is a rush of visitors, there are chances of children going missing in the crowd. Now with the band, I feel reassured.”

An Omani visitor mentioned, “Someone told me about this initiative As soon as I entered today [Friday], I ensured that all my three children had wristbands with my contact number. Now, I can enjoy the festival in peace.”
