Project Lifesaver
About Project Lifesaver
Project Lifesaver is a rapid-response program aiding victims, and their families, suffering from Alzheimer's disease and related disorders such as dementia, as well as autism and learning disabilities.  Project Lifesaver uses state-of-the-art technology and specially trained officers to located individuals who have wandered away and cannot take care of themselves.

People protected by Project Lifesavers are required to wear a personalized bracelet that emits an automatic signal constantly throughout the day.  When caregivers notify the local Project Lifesaver Sheriff's Office that the person is missing, a serach and rescue team responds to area and starts searching with the mobile locator tracking system.  This enables trained rescue personnel to locate the subjects in minutes instead of hours.
