National Block Parent® Week-October 25th to 31st, 2009

"Proud of Our Past.... Prepared for the Future"

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 22, 2009) - The Block Parent® Program of Canada is proud to have helped protect local communities across Canada for the past 41 years. Our history proves that the Program works and is needed now more than ever. The Program provides immediate assistance through a safety network as well as by offering supportive community education programs. This is accomplished by the dedication and commitment of its volunteers working closely with police and educators.

The easily recognizable red and white logo still remains a symbol of safety and security to those in need. The implementation of enhanced safety features on the Block Parent® window sign has prepared the Program for the future by ensuring the continued safety of each Block Parent® home. In addition, any employee working at a small business that displays a Business Block Parent® decal must also have passed a security check.

During National Block Parent® Week we are encouraging everyone to become a Block Parent® and help us to continue to protect communities coast to coast. Once the screening and approval process has been successfully completed, the Block Parent® is instructed to display their window sign whenever they are available to assist in an emergency situation.
