Missing children and missing elderly are two of the most dire situations facing first responders due to the fact that they are not as strong and may not be as capable of surviving a long time lost.
Would your child know what to do if they were lost? Do you know what the typical lost person behavior of an Alzheimer’s patient is? Travis County Search and Rescue (TCSAR) is available to help you, your child and your caretakers to be better prepared in case your loved one is missing.
We have two primary audiences we are trying to reach with our presentations:
• Children, Teachers and Parents
• Caregivers of the elderly and Alzheimer’s patients.
Presentation to Children, Teachers and Parents:
This presentation and discussion is designed to teach children what to do if lost in the woods. We want to make sure the children know what to expect when first responders are out searching for them as well as teach the children how to be more prepared if they do become lost.
Our goal is to help protect a lost child and to help searchers find the child more quickly. As part of this and if time and space allow, children may get to meet the dogs as well as participate in a “Live” Find drill.

Presentation to Caregivers of the Elderly and Alzheimer’s patients:
This presentation and discussion is designed to teach caregivers and family members of the elderly and Alzheimer’s patients what to expect if their loved one is missing. There are typical wandering and lost behaviors presented by the elderly and Alzheimer’s patients that we want to make you aware of. With this information you may be able to provide more information to law enforcement in the event of a lost loved one.
