IEEE-USA MOVE Community Outreach
In August 2015, IEEE-USA agreed to launch the MOVE Community Outreach project, a collaboration with Regions 3 & 5 and the Red Cross to deploy a vehicle with volunteer support team by the end of 1Q2016, designed and equipped to provide communications and power to people in areas impacted by natural disaster. The vehicle will also be used in proactive STEM education and public visibility engagements. Donations are sought to help build and equip the vehicle and support its operations.
