Safety First: Verizon Wireless Located At Circuit City In Modesto, California, Hosts Child Safety Day

Modesto, CA —
WHO: Representatives from the Modesto Police Department, Modesto Fire Department, and Verizon Wireless sales team members Larry Chewning, Alejandra Cruz, Lindsay Johnson, and Elia Valencia.

WHAT: Verizon Wireless, the only major carrier to offer a 30-day network “Test Drive” pledge that pays for calls if a customer isn’t satisfied and switches to another carrier, will host a child safety day at its Modesto Circuit City store. The Modesto Police and Fire Departments will provide ID Kits for children. Firefighters will teach “stop, drop and roll” techniques and conduct tours of their fire apparatus.

Verizon Wireless experts will demonstrate Chaperone service. Chaperone offers a way for parents to monitor the location of their child’s phone–through their own handset or online–and to set up geographical fences that alert the parent when the child has left the predetermined area. Experts will also demonstrate how to enable Amber Alerts through Verizon Wireless Mobile Web.

WHEN: Friday, July 25, 2008, 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

WHERE: Modesto Circuit City, Verizon Wireless Communications Store, 3401 Dale Rd, Modesto, CA, 95356, 209-480-1646
