  Who We Are

​   Project Lifesaver was established in April 1999 as an initiative of the 43rd Search and Rescue Company of the

   Chesapeake Sheriff's Office.  Project Lifesaver's mission is to use state of the art technology in assisting those caring

   for persons who have Alzheimer's and other Related Mental Dysfunction Disorders (ARMD) who wander and

   become lost. These include the elderly and even the youngest in our communities who are afflicted with Down

   syndrome, Autism or developmental disorders. There are no boundaries - no one is immune!


   Initial transmitters were fitted for persons documented as suffering with Alzheimer's or dementia.  The first time the

   transmitters were used, the wandered person was located in under ½ hour in a densely wooded area.  From this

   success the proactive program developed, providing timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury to

   those who wander due to Alzheimer's or dementia. 


   Project Lifesaver has over 1,400 participating member agencies throughout 48 states in the U.S., six provinces in

   Canada, and Australia; more than 3,000 searches have been performed over the last 16 years with no serious injuries

   or fatalities ever reported. Alabama boasts 81 Project Lifesaver towns and communities!
