    Nancy McBride from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children discusses what you should know before your family vacation this year.

    Nancy McBride: My name is Nancy McBride and I am with The National Centre for Missing & Exploited Children and today I am going to talk to you about summer safety, things that you as a parent or guardian can do to help keep your kids safer in the summer months. But before we get started, think a little bit about what you were taught when you were a child about how to stay safer? Were you taught never to talk to strangers, were to taught never to take candy from strangers? We will be dealing with those issues and I will provide some helpful tools and resources, so that you can help safeguard your kids in the summer. I have been with The National Centre for Missing & Exploited Children since 1990 and been in this industry for over 20 years. I have written a number of publications and articles about the issue of child safety and I am happy to share that information with you today to give you the tools and resources you need as a parent or a guardian.
