The IEEE Disaster Relief Vehicle (MOVE)
June 29, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
IEEE-USA/IEEE TEMS Chicago Chapter
IEEE-USA and the American Red Cross are partnering on the MOVE Community Outreach program to provide short-term communications and power solutions after natural disasters and infrastructure failures. Services will include cell phone charging, communication of real-time information and Internet access for the public. Volunteer IEEE engineers and technologists, through a specially constructed Mobile Outreach VEhicle (MOVE), will travel to disaster zones to offer the know-how and technology to provide rechargeable power banks, real-time survivor information and Wi-Fi until regular electricity and data services can be restored. Come learn about this exiting member-lead initiative! Please visit http://move.ieeeusa.org/
