Project Lifesaver

Assists families and caregivers of individual with:

· Alzheimer’s

· Autism

· Down syndrome

· Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

· Other cognitive disabilities

How does Project Lifesaver Work?

Uses electronic tracking equipment to track the lost individual from:

· The Ground

· The Air

· Under Water

· Under Ground      

The person with a tendency to wander wears a bracelet with a unique tracking emission signal and once the person is reported missing, a specially trained project lifesaver search and rescue team responds with a mobile locator.  In areas where this technology has been used, search time is reduced from days and hours to minutes.


Project Lifesaver gives caregivers peace of mind and reassurance, and saves time, manpower, money and most of all saves lives.
