Project Lifesaver: bringing loved ones home

Milos mama

Note from Milo's Mama:

Being in Sarpy County, we contacted our local police department and they got us to Captain Griger. He was so easy to work with. Then, a designated officer came to our home and got us set up.  Its nice to know that with all the running around we do, if Milos was to get lost, they would be able to find him faster. -Milos Mama

Project Lifesaver is a search and rescue program, operated internationally by public safety agencies. This is strategically designed for “at risk” individuals who are prone to the life threatening behavior of wandering. The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children with the propensity to wander due to a cognitive condition.

With Project Lifesaver your “at risk” individual is given an bracelet.  This will have its own identification number assigned.  This way they are able to track that bracelet up to an 3 mile radius. Also, since its nationally, when you travel, you can see if the place you are going to has this program.

In most cases its free and is maintained by your local Police/Sheriff department and local (Omaha) Autism Action Partnership.
