Extra Help for Parents & Caregivers

EmSeeQ Emergency Locator — The first and only cellular-based locator system helps recover wandering and lost loved ones. This unique system provides peace of mind to parents and caregivers. Unable to find their way home or function well independently, impaired individuals— including children with autism—are at grave risk due to exposure to the elements or hazards they may encounter while wandering. The wristwatch-style device uses cellular telephone technology to securely locate the wearer in the event of a wandering emergency. The device is effective and reliable nationwide—anywhere cell service is available—and integrates directly with the E-9-1-1 emergency response system.

When an EmSeeQ wearer wanders off, the caregiver calls 9-1-1 after a thorough search of all the usual places. The caregiver receives a case number from emergency officials and calls the EmFinder’s toll-free hotline to report the missing person. EmFinders remotely activates the missing individual’s EmSeeQ device and the activated device calls 9-1-1. The EmSeeQ device is activated only after a caregiver has reported the missing person to the police, and the Emfinders Emergency Operations Center can provide emergency responders with valuable health-related information that may aid in the successful rescue of the EmSeeQ wearer.

The device is also very affordable, costing less than a typical cell phone, with a service plan that runs about $25 per month. Two bracelet models are available: a watch-style band with a buckle, and a secure clasp-style band that requires two hands for removal to ensure that it cannot be removed by the impaired individual.
