SILVER ALERT: What is it exactly?

 
SILVER ALERT: What is it exactly?
Posted April 9th, 2014 @ 11:01am

I see these signs all the time... ever wonder what it really means?

 

I looked it up: CLICK HERE

Florida’s Silver Alert is for cognitively impaired individuals who become lost while driving a car or lost while on foot. Silver Alert is a plan to help local law enforcement in the rescue of missing persons who have a cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Through the use of dynamic message signs along Florida roadways, Silver Alerts are broadcast to the public. When the missing person message is announced, the family will be contacted by a local Memory Disorder Center for follow-up support and services.

 

If that was one of my family members I would be so scared.  I'll be taking more note of the signs from now on. #BeKind
