Recharging Power and Potential

10 January 2023 – IEEE-USA’s MOVE-1 disaster relief vehicle is being moved back to California (from Raleigh, NC) to be ready to support Red Cross operations, if needed. California has significant damage from a continuing series of storms with heavy wind and rain that is causing flooding.

MOVE Community Outreachan IEEE-USA Initiative, 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.

When not deployed for natural disasters, MOVE volunteers conduct community outreach and facilitate learning opportunities for students and the general public in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). They have been as far west as Texas, and as far north as New York to get students excited about STEM.
