Lost Kids Kiosks presented by Circle K (Various Locations)
This wristband is used in the event that a child is lost on the park during the day. The parent or adult accompanying that child provides a cell phone number to the volunteer who writes it on the wristband., which is then put on the child.
If a child then becomes lost or appears to be lost, they would be escorted to the onsite police station (by a member of our security team) and then the staff for Lost Kids’ at the Police Station would then proceed to call the number to match up the parent/adult indicated on the wristband.
Each volunteer or staff has a stock of wristbands and a Sharpie marker. Wristbands are free of charge.
Each kiosk will have a designated staff member from Prairieland/Saskatoon EX to replenish wristbands, make calls on the radio and alleviate quick bathroom/food breaks.
Volunteers in this area require a Criminal Record Check with a Vulnerable Sector check. CRC are free of charge for volunteers with a letter confirming duties. If the volunteer already has a CRC for 2023 due to employment, we can take a copy of that.
