For Immediate Release
Ultradent’s Team Unites to Support NCMEC and the Wireless AMBER Alert Initiative
July 28, 2009 South Jordan, UT
Ultradent announced a company-wide initiative to support Wireless AMBER Alerts, a voluntary partnership between the United States Department of Justice, the National Center for Missing and Exploited (NCMEC) Children and participating companies from the wireless industry in an effort to establish an emergency notification system for missing children.
Statistics shared by NCMEC indicate that the first three hours after a child’s abduction are crucial in implementing a successful recovery effort. With hundreds of “eyes on the road” every day, Ultradent’s management team encouraged employees to participate in the Wireless AMBER Alert network to assist law enforcement in their recovery efforts. “In supporting this initiative,” said Dr. Fischer, Ultradent’s President/CEO, “we hope that other organizations will follow suit in asking their members to participate in this very important effort.”
Wireless subscribers (those which are capable of receiving text messages), may opt in to receive Wireless AMBER Alerts by registering at www.wirelessamberalerts.org or by visiting their wireless carrier's website. Once an AMBER alert is issued by law enforcement, the NCMEC is notified and provided with information to include in the alert. NCMEC formats the AMBER Alert message and sends it electronically to Syniverse which sends the FREE message to select wireless carriers. The carriers, in turn, send the alert to subscribers.
