IPAWS Emergency Notification Helps Bring Home Missing Family Member

It was a Sunday morning—Easter morning—in Blount, Tennessee. Lance Coleman, Blount County Emergency Management Director, was visiting with family when he received a phone call—the type of phone call any emergency manager would dread. A citizen of Blount County, a 77-year-old dementia patient, was missing. The man’s wife contacted the Blount County emergency dispatcher’s office shortly after 12:05 a.m. that morning to report that her husband had wandered out of the home in his pajamas and that she had not been able to locate him. The call initiated a seven-hour search for the man that encompassed a four to five-mile radius, thanks to the efforts of the County’s emergency response personnel, the Blount County Sheriff’s Office, and the County’s administrative leadership.
