The Alzheimer's Association has led a training session for the Sherman Volunteer Fire Department.  During the event last night, the firefighters heard about responding to incidents involving patients with Alzheimer's or dementia who wander.  The Alzheimer's Association has partnered with MedicAlert to provide a service called "Medic Alert + Safe Return". Through this program, individuals who are at risk for wandering wear a MedicAlert bracelet which contains an identification code and toll free number. In the event that a person wanders off the bracelet helps first responders identify them and provides a means for notifying the appropriate care giver through the ID number.
