There is a new program in Lambton to to help vulnerable people who might wander from home.
Lambton OPP is now offering Project Lifesaver, along with Sarnia Police and Victim Services.
People with Alzheimer’s, Autism, Downs Syndrome, or acquired brain injuries can wander from home. Project Lifesaver gives participants a small personalized wristband that can be tracked by the Project Lifesaver receiver.
OPP say a number of police officers are now electronic search specialists who operate the tracking system. The technology allows first responders to quickly find the wandering person and get them back home.
You can register a family member by contacting Victim Services of Sarnia Lambton at 519-344-8861 ext. 5238 or online at www.victimservices.on.ca.
There is a small fee to join.
