AmpliVox Sound Systems recently came to the aid of firefighters battling disastrous fires in California, providing a free shipment of handheld megaphones for use in their emergency response efforts. The donation is part of AmpliVox’s ongoing Community Contribution program, which supports the missions of public service organizations and charities with targeted donations of sound equipment.
When news broke of the Camp and Woolsey wildfires in California, AmpliVox contacted the California State Firefighters’ Association to offer a shipment of the company’s 602-R Mity-Meg Rechargeable Megaphones. A popular choice for firefighters, police officers, and other first responders across the nation, the Mity-Meg delivers 25 watts of clear sound amplification from a lightweight, handheld unit. These portable sound systems are extremely effective for giving instructions to groups of civilians and communicating among team members, even under extreme conditions.
Previous AmpliVox megaphone donations have gone to the American Red Cross, hurricane relief teams in Houston, Texas, and breast cancer fundraising walks through the national Susan G. Komen organization. Donations of other equipment, including PA systems and presentation lecterns, have supported Special Olympics Illinois, Law Enforcement United, dozens of breast cancer and prostate cancer fundraising groups, and many other organizations.
“Firefighters put their lives on the line every day, and we want to support them wherever they are,” notes Don Roth, AmpliVox CEO. “We are honored to stand with the California State Firefighters’ Association and hope that our products will help as they continue to deal with emergency situations.”
