Project Lifesaver International is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization that bridges the technological gap for “at risk” populations and public safety agencies. Project Lifesaver provides police, fire/rescue and other first responders with a comprehensive program including equipment and training to quickly locate and rescue “at risk” individuals with cognitive disorders who are at constant risk to the life threatening behavior of wandering including those with Alzheimer’s disease, Autism, and Down syndrome.
Funded in part by a grant from the Bay Area Community Foundation, The Arc Bay County has joined the over 1,200 Project Lifesaver participating agencies throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia. Project Lifesaver provides equipment, training, certification and support to law enforcement, public safety organizations and community groups throughout the country and nation.
The average recovery time for Project Lifesaver clients is reduced from hours to an average of 30 minutes. The Bay County Sherriff Department has been trained to respond with a Search and Rescue team when notified of a missing Project Lifesaver client.
