IEEE-USA MOVE Team Training

January 14 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Co-sponsored by: merandall@ieee.org

MOVE Community Outreach – an IEEE-USA Initiative.  MOVE is an emergency relief program committed to assisting victims of natural disasters with short-term communications, computer, and power solutions. These temporary emergency relief provisions help those affected stay connected and make sure they can access the help they need. Services include phone charging, internet & communications support, and lighting to disaster victims. Partnering with the American Red Cross, IEEE’s U.S. highly-skilled volunteers provide this technical assistance via a Mobile Outreach VEhicle which is accessible during a disaster.

WE NEED YOU!  If you would like to join the MOVE team of trained volunteers, please plan to attend the general training.
