DAYTON, OHIO … Dayton Freight Lines, Inc. has joined the AMBER Alert Highway Network (AAHN), an initiative of Qualcomm and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. Using location-based mobile technology, AAHN will disseminate AMBER Alerts to all Dayton Freight trucks within a specified geographical area.
With a fleet of over 1,100 trucks traveling throughout 11 Midwest states, Dayton Freight is in a unique position to help protect our local communities, save lives and reunite abducted children with their loved ones.
Dayton Freight Drivers can view AMBER Alerts – using onboard computer technology - at their next stop. If they see the vehicle or child in question, they will pull over and call the number listed in the AMBER Alert.
About 95% of the children for whom an AMBER Alert was activated have been safely recovered. As a family-owned Company, Dayton Freight values the efforts of AAHN and is proud to participate in this important, life-saving program.
