Mon-Valley Safety Program Enters 21st Year


Paglia, Ron, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


For the 21st consecutive year, a child registry safety and identification program for kindergarten students in the area is being sponsored by the Auxiliary of Mon-Vale Health Resources Inc. and the Mon Valley Police Chiefs Association.

Mon-Vale Health Resources is the parent company of Monongahela Valley Hospital, and the program is funded by the MVHR Fund Development Committee.

"The basic tenet is to furnish law enforcement agencies with sufficient supportive materials to provide a quick and effective search mechanism in the event a child is missing," Cieply said.

In addition to Belle Vernon Area, other school districts participating in this year's programs are Bethlehem-Center, California Area, Charleroi Area, Frazier, Monessen, Ringgold and Yough. …
