Proven Technology & Processes to Help Find People Who Wander and Go Missing
The SafetyNet® Tracking Systems service helps caregivers provide an added layer of protection for loved ones with cognitive conditions such as autism and Alzheimer’s from the potentially life-threatening behavior of wandering. The service enables public safety agencies to more effectively find and rescue people at risk in the event they wander, supplementing traditional searches that often take countless man-hours. By leveraging proven technology and processes, the SafetyNet® Tracking Systems service aids in the safe return of a person who goes missing and provides peace of mind to caregivers.
How SafetyNet® Tracking Systems Works
Once caregivers enroll their loved ones in the service, they receive a SafetyNet® Tracking Systems Bracelet, which is worn by the person at risk typically on their wrist or ankle. The caregiver provides information about the client to assist in search and rescue, which is then entered into a secure database. SafetyNet® Tracking Systems provides 24x7 emergency caregiver support. For participating public safety agencies, SafetyNet® Tracking Systems provides Search and Rescue Receivers, certified training and ongoing support.
The SafetyNet® Tracking Systems Bracelet constantly emits a Radio Frequency signal. Radio Frequency is the technology of choice because, unlike cellular and GPS technology, its signal doesn’t rely on cellular networks or satellite signals and can often be tracked when a client wanders into a shallow body of water, a densely wooded area, a concrete structure such as a garage, or a building constructed with steel.
The Search and Rescue Receivers can detect the Radio Frequency signal emitted from a SafetyNet® Tracking Systems Bracelet typically within a range of approximately one mile in on-the-ground searches and 5-7 miles in searches by helicopter.
The certified training for public safety agencies focuses on the use of specialized electronic equipment, technology, procedures and on how to effectively communicate with and approach individuals who have cognitive conditions. SafetyNet® Tracking Systems’s secure database contains information on each individual client enrolled in the program so that public safety agency search and rescue teams can have information on the individual’s physical characteristics, personal habits and how he or she should be approached, addressed and comforted.
