Miracle launches new child safety efforts

Thursday, November 5, 2009

The Miracle Recreation Equipment south plant in Monett.
Miracle Recreation Equipment Company has launched a new line of products aimed at providing higher security in the playground equipment business. The new MiracleTech product line was announced at the National Recreation Park Association annual conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah, in October.

The patent is pending for Miracle's new integrated security product line. Products include the ParkWatch, which includes an infrared security camera connected to playground equipment to wirelessly record events using digital technology.

Products also include SiteBrite low voltage lighting and the SonicScreen patented sound technology, designed to deter after-hours vandalism. The system can be mounted on a new or existing playground structures. The MiracleTech system can also be post mounted to retrofit to any recreation facility that has vandalism issues.

"In today's world, we as a society must all look out for the safety and security of our children," said Mike Sutton, director of sales at Miracle and a former law enforcement officer

Sutton said security on playgrounds has not been addressed appropriately in the past by any playground equipment manufacturer.

Miracle has also announced that sales of its new product line will be used to fund a collaborative effort with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Miracle has pledged to donate more than $250,000 to NCMEC over the next three years and to help cover lodging costs necessary to reunite family members with their missing children upon recovery.

The money will be used to support NCMEC's mission of finding missing children, preventing child abduction and sexual exploitation, and serving child victims and their families. Funds will also support NCMEC's prevention education efforts targeted at providing resources and information for families to help keep their children safer. As part of the partnership, NCMEC will develop child safety tips for playgrounds and parks.

"It is with the generous support of partners like Miracle that we are able to continue our work and help make children safer and better prepared for the risks that they face in today's world," said Ernie Allen, NCMEC president and CEO. "Together we can provide families with the tools and resources that can help make our communities safer, something that is important to both of our organizations."
