Imagine Art, a division of Riverview Industries Inc., presented a banner handcrafted by their artists to Project Lifesaver of Ottawa County Dec. 17 at the Ottawa County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

Previously, the Ottawa County Project Lifesaver organization approached Imagine Art about creating a banner for use in community presentations. The non-profit organization provides police, fire/rescue and other first responders with a comprehensive program including equipment and training to help quickly locate and rescue “at risk” individuals with cognitive disorders who are at risk for wandering. Project Lifesaver participants wear a transmitter, which helps first responders locate them. The average rescue time is less than 30 minutes.
