ORANGE COUNTY LIFE TRACK

What is Life Track- Life Track is about people and partnerships. It is a proactive response to identifying citizens within the (our) community who have been known to become confused, have a tendency to wander and may not be able to return safely on their own. Individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, Autism, Down’s syndrome and other such disorders can now be located through state of the art technology. The program is run by members who are specially trained, not only in the use of the electronic tracking equipment but also in ways to communicate with those that may be confused and disoriented. 

Radio Technology and Rescue Team - The Life Track program consists of a personalized radio transmitter that is worn by the individual on their wrist or ankle that emits a tracking signal. When the individual becomes missing, the caregiver calls 9-11 the agency and the rescue team will respond to the last known location of the individual and begin the search with the mobile locator tracking system. With this proven radio technology, search times can be reduced from hours and days to minutes.

Orange County and Life Track The Life Track Program was established with the Orange County Sheriff’s office in May 2009 .The focus is on law enforcement, civic groups, local business and caregivers joining  in developing and strengthening all aspects of the program including education, fundraising and rescues.

Amid the dramatic increase of people with Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome, and Autism, Life Track addresses the need to protect these patients and bring comfort to their families and caregivers.
