Project Lifesaver - Bringing Loved Ones Home
Through a partnership with the Cayuga County Office for the Aging and Cayuga County Sheriff's Office, Project Lifesaver is a rapid-response program for individuals who are at risk of wandering and becoming lost. Each participant is fitted with a personalized Project Lifesaver wristband. This unique wristband is a one-ounce battery-operated transmitter that emits an automatic tracking signal.
When needed, this signal can be tracked by specially trained personnel with the Cayuga County Sheriff's Office on the ground or in the air. Search time has typically been reduced from hours and days down to minutes.
Project Lifesaver can provide comfort and peace of mind to caregivers without compromising the safety or dignity of their loved one.
