Project Lifesaver

Saving lives one bracelet at a time!

Project LifeSaver is available to residents living in Oceanside and surrounding communities

Project Lifesaver may be the answer to wandering concerns for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, autism, down syndrome, developmental disorders and brain injury.

How it Works
Project Lifesaver places personalized radio transmitters on identified persons. In the event of the wearer wandering, the caregiver notifies local RCMP stipulating that the lost person is a client of Project Lifesaver.

RCMP will then notify Arrowsmith Search and Rescue who has the technology to locate the transmitters’ signal in a much shorter length of time than traditional lost person searches.

Fully trained local volunteers will come to your home to place the transmitter on the person. These volunteers will also perform regular maintenance visits ensuring the equipment is in good working order at all times.
