PROJECT LIFESAVER WELLINGTON

Project Lifesaver – Guelph Wellington – helps families protect members who may wander. Typically these are people living with Alzheimer’s, autism, Down’s Syndrome, acquired brain injury or other types of cognitive impairment.

 

These individuals can be equipped with a 1 ounce wrist transmitter that sends a radio signal which can be tracked up to a 2 kilometer radius. The system operates all day, every day of the year.

 

When notified by caregivers that an individual has gone missing, specially trained police officers use mobile tracking equipment to find them.
