In an effort to help protect children and adults on the autism spectrum, the Flutie Foundation is proud to announce our partnership with SafetyNet by LoJack. Through this partnership, the Foundation and SafetyNet by LoJack have donated over 100 SafetyNet bracelets and one-year subscriptions to the SafetyNet service covering the initial registration fee of $99 and one year of service ($360 value) to caregivers of individuals with autism in New England with a history of wandering who could not otherwise afford them.

Upon enrollment in the SafetyNet™ Service, the individual is outfitted with a SafetyNet Bracelet that may be worn on his or her wrist or ankle. Should they go missing, the caregiver notifies authorities and local law enforcement and public safety agencies who are trained and certified on electronic search and rescue procedures will use digital SafetyNet Search and Rescue Receivers to track the Radio Frequency signal being emitted from the SafetyNet Bracelet on the person's wrist or ankle.  Once they are located, he or she can be rescued and returned to their caregiver.

The Foundation believes that by working directly with law enforcement and using the world's most successful recovery technology, the SafetyNet Service offers the best chance of quickly rescuing lost loved ones and bringing them home safely.
