Project Lifesaver launches on Manitoulin Island and in Espanola

Espanola and Manitoulin Island are now benefitting from Project Lifesaver, in partnership with the Manitoulin OPP.

Constable John Hill, community safety officer, says Project Lifesaver utilizes a wristband, radio frequency and antennas, which use a frequency-based tracking system to track or find high-risk individuals who go missing.

He says these vulnerable individuals can include those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, other dementias, or other forms of cognitive delay.

Hill says the client wears a personalized wristband that emits a unique signal so when someone goes missing, trained OPP officers can respond to the area where the lost person was last seen and carry out a search with a mobile location tracking system.

He says the support of Domtar and the Manitoulin Northshore Victim Services was vital in launching Project Lifesaver, thanking them for their support.
