Service Details

Description

Project Lifesaver uses a locator system to rapidly find vulnerable people who have a tendency to wander off and get lost.


The personal locating device is about the size of a wristwatch and is worn on the wrist or ankle. The waterproof device is worn 24 hours every day and transmits a silent radio pulse. If the person wanders and can't be located, the caregivers contact the emergency responders. The responders can find the person more quickly using radio receivers.
