"Bringing Loved Ones Home"
Project Lifesaver is a proactive response to identify those individuals within the community who have a tendency to wander away from their caretakers. This program consists of a small radio transmitter that the client wears on their wrist or ankle. Each transmitter has a frequency that is unique to the client. They can then be tracked by receiving equipment that highly trained emergency responders use.
Project Lifesaver Hendricks County was formed in January 2008. Several members of Brownsburg Fire Territory received the specialized training needed to use the tracking equipment, and within the first 6 months of operation had 8 more clients from the Avon, Brownsburg and Danville areas. Today there are over 35 clients enrolled and numerous agencies and individuals in the Hendricks County area trained in the use of the locating equipment.
