National Child Alert System and AUSA Family Programs Discount Program 

American military families can receive a 50 percent discount on the online National Child Alert System and USB keychain file storage device through a partnership between National Child Alert System and the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Family Programs Directorate.  
  National Child Alert System contributes to the safety and well being of our nation’s children by providing electronic storage of key biographical child data inputted by parents. These data profiles are stored in a database in up to 3 secure and password-protected mediums to be retrieved by parents and authorities in the event of a missing child.

Sylvia Kidd, AUSA's Director of Family Programs, has partnered with National Child Alert System as a way to make this valuable safety resource accessible to more military families. As a result of the partnership, military families can enjoy two of National Child Alert System's most popular child safety programs at a reduced rate.

The National Child Alert System includes features such as KidzMap and KidzBlast that gives parents access to cutting edge functionality. Information on up to 100 contacts per child can be stored with each child’s profile. If a child goes missing, a parent can send out email and cell phone text message blasts to all 100 contacts with one click. The System also stores information such as fingerprints, dental records, medical information, identifying marks, and comes complete with a DNA sample storage system and optional pre-need DNA analysis.

The National Child Alert System program can be utilized as a stand-alone program run on a USB Keychain drive, on a parent’s local computer hard drive, and as an online application that can work by itself, or in synchronization with the USB and hard drive applications.

To take advantage of the discount, go to and select the "Military Families Click Here" link at the bottom of the page. Enter the code AUSA50 during the registration process.

Please contact Child Alert System with questions about the registration process at and include the words "AUSA ASSIST" in the subject line.
