Project Lifesaver

Project Lifesaver utilizes a tracking bracelet which pinpoints the location of a missing person. Locally, Project Lifesaver is administrated d by the Collier County Sheriff's Office. Below are more details.

Project Lifesaver is a nationwide program that helps locate seniors and children with medical or disabling conditions that may cause them to wander away.

More than 1,400 searches have been completed using this equipment and on average it takes 30 minutes to locate a person using the tracking equipment. It saves valuable time and resources to find wandering adults and seniors.


The program requires the senior to have a full time caregiver who will check the battery and call 9-1-1 immediately if a client wanders.

Donations made by the Pilot Club of Naples, helped to purchase receivers and transmitters. Transmitters are worn either on their wrist or ankle.

The donated transmitters are available to any member of the public who cannot afford to purchase a transmitter themselves. There is a monthly fee of $10.00 which covers the cost of a battery and bracelet change.
