HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – The Tewksbury-Lebanon Township PBA 386 recently made a donation of $750 to continue supporting the Project Lifesaver program in Hunterdon County.
Project Lifesaver utilizes state-of-the-art technologies to supplement existing public safety operations for emergency service response to lost and wandering person who suffer from Alzheimers and other Disabilities such as Down Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury, Autism and People with Developmental or Intellectual Disabilities.
The program helps to eliminate the fear and anxiety of the client’s families. Clients that are enrolled in the Program wear personalized wristband that emit a tracking signal. This one-ounce battery operated radio wrist transmitter emits an automatic tracking signal every second, 24 hours a day. Each bracelet has a unique radio frequency.
The Hunterdon County Sheriff’s Office Project Lifesaver Task Force is equipped with special tracking equipment that can receive each radio frequency up to about one mile. In the event that a client becomes missing, the caregiver will immediately call 911 and the task force will be deployed to the client’s last know location.
