Project Lifesaver for Individuals with Cognitive Conditions Now Available

Project Lifesaver relies on proven radio technology and specially trained search and rescue personnel. Citizens enrolled in Project Lifesaver wear a small transmitter on the wrist or ankle that emits an individualized frequency signal. If an enrolled client goes missing, the caregiver notifies their local Project Lifesaver agency, and a trained emergency team responds to the wanderer’s area. The first responders will then use the client’s individualized frequency to locate the position of the individual. First responders are also put through community policing courses to learn how to best approach the client once found and allow them to be brought back to safety.
