Edge solutions provider Cradlepoint announced Wednesday the company will donate a portion of its 2019 public safety revenues to first responder charities in 2020. The charitable contribution is part of Cradlepoint’s FirstConnect program, designed to ease the challenges often faced by first responder agencies in purchasing, deploying, and supporting fixed site, in-vehicle, and IoT-based routing solutions for access to FirstNet and other nationwide public safety broadband networks.
The charities are:
- First Responders Children’s Foundation (https://firstresponderkids.org): The First Responders Children’s Foundation (FRCF) is committed to ensuring that the children of first responders receive the resources necessary to help them thrive and become the heroes of tomorrow.
- Leary Firefighters Foundation (www.learyfirefighters.org): The Leary Firefighters Foundation (LFF) was founded by actor Denis Leary after the loss of his cousin and a childhood friend in an abandoned warehouse fire. LFF’s mission is to provide funding and resources for fire departments to obtain the best available equipment, technology, and training. It is dedicated to helping maintain the highest level of public safety in its communities.
“We feel an obligation to be more than just a solution provider, which is why our mantra is, ‘we connect and serve those who protect and serve our communities’, and why our FirstConnect program includes an annual charitable contribution to first responder causes,” said Cradlepoint Chief Marketing Officer Todd Krautkremer.
