Description

Project Lifesaver combines radio technology with coordinated police response to locate wandering and disoriented people due to cognitive issues like dementia. With an average rescue time of 30 minutes, Project Lifesaver can reduce the potential for injury and save lives.

Participants in the Project Lifesaver program wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal. When caregivers of registered participants notify 911 that their loved one is missing, a specialized law enforcement Search and Rescue Team responds, searching the area where the individual was last seen, making use of a mobile-location tracking system.
