The Charlotte Lions Club was able to provide the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office with new updated Project Lifesaver equipment recently to keep the program available and up to date for the citizens of Charlotte County. The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer’s, Autism and other related conditions or disorders. The program relies on proven radio technology and specially trained individuals. Citizens enrolled in Project Lifesaver wear a small transmitter on the wrist or ankle that emits an individualized frequency signal. With the generosity of the Charlotte Lions Club, the Sheriff’s Office received a new transmitter set and a new receiver that was needed to replace older out of date equipment. No fees are charged to the individuals enrolled in this program in Charlotte County.
