To enhance communication at disaster scenes and other vital operations, AmpliVox Sound Systems is providing its signature Mity-Meg Rechargeable Megaphones to the American Red Cross. AmpliVox has donated twelve of the versatile portable sound systems, ten for disaster relief teams and two for Red Cross events sponsored by its Communications Department.
The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need, in the US and internationally. The non-government agency responds to approximately 70,000 disasters in the United States every year, ranging from home fires that affect a single family, to hurricanes that affect tens of thousands, to earthquakes that impact millions. In these events, the Red Cross provides shelter, food, health, and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet.
AmpliVox’s Mity-Meg Rechargeable Megaphones will provide reliable, powerful sound amplification for Red Cross efforts, improving crowd control and communication between team members. The SB602R Mity-Meg is a lightweight, weather-resistant design unit, delivering sound coverage of up to a mile with talk, whistle, and siren modes. An integrated lithium-ion rechargeable battery and AmpliVox-exclusive power indicator light keeps the unit running for up to eight hours of typical use. Weighing just two pounds, the Mity-Meg carries easily with the included wrist strap and comfortable pistol grip
“We are grateful for the generous gift from AmpliVox Sound Systems,” said Harley Jones, Regional Disaster Officer, American Red Cross of Chicago & Northern Illinois. “This technology will be useful when our volunteers are delivering relief items to communities affected by disasters like tornadoes and floods, and also during preparedness activities, such as our smoke alarm installation rallies.”
