TOWN OF THOMPSON, NY — Project Lifesaver, a training exercise to locate missing residents at the Center for Discovery, was held Nov. 17 at the facility in the town of Thompson, NY.
Residents at the Center for Discovery who are at high risk for leaving the premises unsupervised are fitted with radio transmitters to help rescue crews locate them more quickly.
The training simulated a search for a missing resident. The rescue crews received a radio transmitter frequency from dispatch. Using radio receivers, the crews tracked the transmitter on the simulated subject.
The training was led by Timothy Schweider, a forest ranger with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, assisted by the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, and the facility’s security officers.
