The North Augusta Department of Public Safety support Project Lifesaver. The technology has been put to the test in the field and proven a beneficial tool in the location and more important the safe return of individuals that are prone to wandering.
"Citizens enrolled in Project Lifesaver wear a small personal transmitter around the wrist or ankle that emits an individualized tracking signal. If an enrolled client goes missing, the caregiver notifies their local Project Lifesaver agency, and a trained emergency team responds to the wanderer’s area. Most who wander are found within a few miles from home, and search times have been reduced from hours and days to minutes. Recovery times for PLI clients average 30 minutes — 95% less time than standard operations."
