The cards, which are free of charge, will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Gilmer Civic Center on U.S. 271.
Parents will keep both copies of the cards, which will have a picture of the child to be taken at the event, Case said. The identifications are for youngsters through age 18.
Parents get both copies of the card, which will list the child's name, date of birth and address, said Case.
The event is open to the general public, not just Gilmer city residents, he noted.
"By doing this, it will allow the parents to have all the child's pertinent information up front should a situation ever occur and the information is needed," Case said last week.
