Participants wear a battery-operated bracelet that sends an FM radio signal 24 hours a day. It even works in areas such as buildings and forests.
Volunteers from Victim Services Wellington visit each client once a month to change the battery.
When a caregiver tells their local police service that a client has gone missing, trained police officers will use Project Lifesaver equipment to search for and locate the missing person.
- Time it takes to find missing people with Project Lifesaver average 30 minutes — 95% less time than without.
- Project Lifesaver has a 100% find rate.
Project Lifesaver does not replace the position of a caregiver, but it is a tool that can save lives and reduce stress felt by family members.
There is a startup fee to join the program as well as a monthly cost to maintain the equipment.
