At its March 19th meeting, the Benton-Carroll-Salem Board of Education highlighted the efforts of Mrs. Carolyne Gilchrist, Coordinator of Ottawa County Project Lifesaver. Gilchrist explained that Project Lifesaver is a non-profit enterprise that provides transmitter wristbands for both children and adults who are at risk of becoming missing or wandering due to a disability, or disease like Alzheimer’s. The wristbands emit an automatic radio signal every second, and that signal can be tracked over several miles. Project Lifesaver has been able to help locate missing children and adults in minutes rather than days. Almost 50% of the missing and wandering will perish if they are not located within 24 hours. Ottawa County Project Lifesaver is sponsored by the Port Clinton Lions Club, the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office, other agencies, and by generous donations. Gilchrist asked those who want more information on this program that can save lives to call 419 898-0400, extension 3133. B-C-S Superintendent Guy Parmigian extended his thanks to Gilchrist for her efforts, and for sharing this critical information that could be of benefit to all ages.
