Project Lifesaver Madison County Begins


Madison County Sheriff Scott Mellinger and members of Community Hospital Anderson and its Foundation, next week will officially launch Project Lifesaver Madison County.

Project Lifesaver is a community based, non-profit organization that provides local public safety agencies and caregivers with a program designed to protect, and when necessary, help to quickly locate individuals with cognitive disorders who are prone to the life-threatening behavior of wandering away from their caregivers.

Project Lifesaver locator equipment will be on display and representatives from fire/rescue and emergency management services will be available for interviews.


“April is National Autism Awareness Month, and April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day, so it is most fitting that we launch this program on that day,” said Sheriff Mellinger.
