Wednesday, April 19, 2017


As part of National Community College Month, one college is hosting a program to help those in need. Gadsden State Community College is hosting a symposium for the community, students, faculty and staff at the Valley Street Campus Student Center. Project Lifesaver is a spealized program for people with conditions like Alzheimer’s, Down syndrome and Autism, or others who are at risk of getting lost. Project Lifesaver provides people with special wristbands containing identification information. Etowah County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Brian Smith says this project could save lives. About 80,000 people in Alabama have Alzheimer’s disease, but fewer than one-thousand of them have Project Lifesaver. The Etowah County Sheriff’s Office is offering these bracelets for free to those who need them. For more information about Project Lifesaver, you can contact the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office or the Gadsden State Office of Safety and Security.
