About Project Lifesaver
The Project Lifesaver program places personalized radio transmitters (in the form of a wristband) on individuals who may be at risk of wandering away from home. These include older adults with Alzheimer's and dementia and children with Down syndrome, Autism or developmental disorders. These transmitters assist caregivers and County Sheriff’s Offices in locating those who wander.
Results of Transmitters
Transmitters have been placed on those with Alzheimer’s, Dementia and children with Autism, Down syndrome or developmental disorders throughout our service area. Local emergency teams respond to calls when an individual wanders and because of the transmitter technology, on average, individuals have been found in less than 30 minutes.
