Project Lifesaver

Project Lifesaver is a rapid response program designed to use state of the art technology in assisting those who care for victims of Alzheimer’s and Related Mental Dysfunction Disorders (ARMD) and victims who become lost. These victims include the elderly and even the youngest in our community who are afflicted with Downs Syndrome and Autism.

Partnerships are formed with local law enforcement and public safety organizations. Specially trained teams are able to quickly locate and return wandering adults and children to their families and caregivers. Enrollment in Project Lifesaver means a personalized wristband or bracelet is given to the individual to wear. The wristband emits a tracking signal. When a caregiver notifies the local Project Lifesaver agency that the person is missing, a rescue team responds to the wanderer’s area and searches with the mobile locator tracking system.
