WE HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS SINCE 1999 HELPING INDIVIDUALS THAT HAVE A TENDENCY TO WANDER.
Clint Gray, is a retired Lt. from the Vermont State Police after 30 years in the Department of Public Service.
When he retired, he still wanted to help people that had a tendency to wander.
Mary was with an ambulance
service for 14 years, dealing with various individuals with special needs.
We started this business by
placing bracelets/transmitters on individuals that wander because there was a need to help.
Until we had the state
fully phased in, we were the responders along with Windham County, Orange County and the Vermont State Police Barracks in
We were trained by Greg Pratt of Stokes County Mountain Rescue in May of 1999. Stokes County
Mountain Rescue was the original Care Trak Program. Chesapeake Virginia was the 2nd pilot program, and Vermont
was the 3rd Pilot Program in the United States.
Vermont was the first state in the United States to be fully
phased in with the emergency locator receivers and responders.
The Vermont Legislature appropriated a one
time funding to the Vermont Sheriff's to have one Care Trak receiver per county so they may respond to lost individuals
wearing a transmitter/bracelet.
Cheshire County, New Hampshire is the 1st county in New Hampshire to have the Care
Trak equipment to respond to individuals that have wandered away wearing a transmitter/bracelet. This was a donation
from a local family in the Keene, New Hampshire area. Sheriff Richard Foote was delighted that a family was able
to donate the emergency locator to his department for the special needs community.
County New Hampshire is the second county phasing in the Care Trak program for their county. Sheriff Jon Hebert just
jumped at the chance to help his special needs community along with the Effingham Chief of Police Joseph M. Collins and various
officers of their community. This was also a donation from the same family in the Keene, NH area.
Once the law enforcement agencies arrive on the scene with the receivers tuned to the specific frequency and they receive
a signal they are able to walked right over to the individual wearing the transmitter/bracelet.
and Mary have trained all the Vermont Sheriff's Departments and the Vermont State Police Search and Rescue Team, headed
by LT. Josh Stohl and also Cheshire County Sheriff's Department in New Hampshire.
Nationally, using the Care
Trak equipment, there have been over 2000 individuals that have been lost and been found in an average time of 30 minutes,
wearing the Care Trak transmitter/bracelet.
