ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many parents in Albany got a bit of education and some of the tools to keep their children from being abducted.

Kindervision held its fourth event this year at the Albany Mall.

There were arts and crafts, a chance to meet first responders, and free tips to safeguard children.

Kindervision made DVD's for parents with critical information should a child get lost. Scott Wheeler took his two boys to the mall just for the event.

"That's why we came to see what's it's all about, get DVD's made and let them experience this fun stuff," said Scott Wheeler, Parent.

"We're trying to educate children and adults about stranger danger, online safety, texting safety, and in general community safety," said Ami Guilliams, Kindervision.

Kindervision has been hosting events like this across South Georgia for the past 25-years.
