Project could be a lifesaver

Last Friday, there was a national news story about a 20 year old autistic man who wandered off and survived three weeks in the in the Utah desert. Local officials and the Port Clinton Lions Club have begun a new program in Ottawa County to make certain that doesn’t happen here.
It’s called Project Lifesaver. In involves wearing a bracelet that contains a transmitter. The transmitter emits a signal that can be traced by local law enforcement agencies. It is targeted at people who may not be able to find their way home if they leave home. The average rescue time is 30 minutes instead of three weeks. However, with out it, almost 50% of the missing and wandering will perish if they are not located within 24 hours.
