Soldiers. Police Officers. Search and Rescue Operatives. Emergency Medical Personnel. People who rush into harm’s way to help people in disasters. They put their lives on the line to help save lives. One of their critical needs is access to electricity, especially in low visibility areas and where communication is a vital resource.
EGF conceptualized Project Red and Ready, solar-powered bags outfitted with a light source and sockets and other emergency equipment so that electricity is on hand when first responders need it. First responders can bring light in the darkest of hours. EGF donated these prototype bags to the Philippine Red Cross for mass production and use.
