Kiwanis member Kayla Clark meets with Deputy Pam Murphy at the sheriff’s Ramona station to review the town’s Project Lifesaver missing person’s locator system financed by Kiwanis Club of Ramona.

The system, the only one of its kind in the county, provides radio frequency wristbands to children and adults with autism, Down syndrome or Alzheimer’s disease.

The sheriff’s Ramona station has receivers that can locate the missing person within minutes.

Information packets are in doctors’ offices in Ramona.

Clark and Murphy are working to procure funding for additional equipment as needed. For more information, contact Murphy at 760-789-9157.

The late Gordon Zick, longtime Ramona Kiwanian and pharmacist, worked to establish the program in Ramona.
