The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer’s, autism, and other related conditions or disorders
Project Lifesaver and Lockheed Martin recently introduced the PLI Indago Unmanned Ariel Vehicle (UAV) System. The PLI Indago UAV System is a military grade, Quad Rotor UAV designed specifically for the search and rescue of Special Needs populations with cognitive disorders who are prone to the life threatening behavior of wandering.
The PLI-1000 Locator System is the newest radio frequency based tracking system that is available to member agencies and to caregivers of loved ones who are prone to wandering.
PAL- Protect and Locate
With the addition of PAL Project Lifesaver will help provide protection and safety to even more individuals who wander due to Autism, Down syndrome, Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other cognitive conditions.
Project Lifesaver is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that bridges the technological gap for “at risk” populations and public safety agencies. We provide police, fire/rescue and other first responders with a comprehensive program on the use of specialized electronic search and rescue equipment, technology and procedures, as well as teaching rescuers how to effectively communicate with people afflicted with cognitive conditions, all of which are essential to a successful rescue.
Project Lifesaver has over 1,600 participating member agencies throughout 50 states in the U.S., six provinces in Canada, and Australia, and has performed over 3,000 searches over the last 18 years with no serious injuries or fatalities ever reported. Project Lifesaver provides equipment, training, certification and support to law enforcement, public safety organizations and community groups throughout the country and nation.
In addition, Project Lifesaver develops public outreach programs to educate others about the issue of wandering, and constantly work toward developing public policy and effective law enforcement response to help save lives and fulfill our mission in “Bringing Loved Ones Home.”
