On October 29th, from 10 AM to 3 PM at 200 West and Tabernacle, St George, there will be a car show honoring emergency first responders from Washington County. Proceeds will help support Project Lifesaver. There will be a Trunk or Treat, food, vendors and the All Hero’s Walk.
Project Lifesaver is a public safety program specifically designed to protect and locate missing persons due to wandering, as a result of cognitive conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Autism and Down Syndrome. The program uses state of the art technology to track, locate and return loved ones to their families after having wandered off.
Local emergency teams respond to calls resulting in an average rescue time of less than 30 minutes. Unlike other services, Project Lifesaver does not rely on GPS technology which requires satellite signal. Project Lifesaver utilizes a radio frequency, which allows the device to work in areas where GPS may not, such as inside buildings, in underground tunnels, and under water, etc.
Project Lifesaver is a non-profit organization. To learn more about Project Lifesaver, visit www.projectlifesaver.org.
If you are the caretaker of someone who may qualify for the free service, or have questions about this service, please contact your local law enforcement agency.
