Project Lifesaver was established in April 1999 as an initiative of the 43rd Search and Rescue Company of the Chesapeake Sheriff's Office. Project Lifesaver's mission is to use state of the art technology in assisting those who care for persons who have Alzheimer's and other Related Mental Dysfunction Disorders (ARMD) and those who wander and become lost. These include the elderly and even the youngest in our community who are afflicted with Down syndrome, Autism or developmental disorders. There are no boundaries - no one is immune!

The Project Lifesaver Program places personalized radio Personal Locator Units on identified persons with ARMD who may wander away from the safety of their homes. These Personal Locator Units assist caregivers and local emergency agencies in locating those who cannot help themselves.

* A large number of Personal Locator Units have been placed on those with Alzheimer's, Dementia and children with Autism and Down syndrome or developmental disorders.

* Local emergency teams respond to calls resulting in an average rescue time of less that 30-minutes.

Project Lifesaver International is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Volunteers assist in all aspects of Project Lifesaver International. Project Lifesaver's volunteers are important and new members are always welcome!

Funding for Project Lifesaver is a result of private and corporate donations and grants.
