The Port Clinton Lions Club recently honored retired Deputy Sheriff Bud Chasteen at a recent meeting for his many years of service. For the past 11 years, Deputy Chasteen has been servicing the Ottawa County clients of Project Lifesaver.
Deputy Chasteen personally visited each of the 17 members each month to ensure their wristband transmitters were working properly.
The program is managed by the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department. Specially trained search teams, including the Sheriff’s deputies and Life Flight helicopter personnel, quickly recover people who are confused or lost. They can reduce the time it takes to locate missing persons from days to minutes.
Project Lifesaver of Ottawa County was initiated by the Port Clinton Lions Club in 2005. It was the first such program established in northwest Ohio.
