communication at disaster scenes and other vital operations, AmpliVox Sound
Systems is providing its signature Mity-Meg Rechargeable Megaphones to the
American Red Cross. AmpliVox has donated twelve of the versatile portable sound
systems, ten for disaster relief teams and two for Red Cross events sponsored
by its Communications Department.
Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need, in the US and
internationally. The non-government agency responds to approximately 70,000
disasters in the United States every year, ranging from home fires that affect
a single family, to hurricanes that affect tens of thousands, to earthquakes
that impact millions. In these events, the Red Cross provides shelter, food,
health, and mental health services to help families and entire communities get
back on their feet.
Mity-Meg Rechargeable Megaphones will provide reliable, powerful sound
amplification for Red Cross efforts, improving crowd control and communication
between team members. The SB602R Mity-Meg is a lightweight, weather-resistant
design unit, delivering sound coverage of up to a mile with talk, whistle, and
siren modes. An integrated lithium-ion rechargeable battery and
AmpliVox-exclusive power indicator light keeps the unit running for up to eight
hours of typical use. Weighing just two pounds, the Mity-Meg carries easily
with the included wrist strap and comfortable pistol grip
grateful for the generous gift from AmpliVox Sound Systems,” said Harley Jones,
Regional Disaster Officer, American Red Cross of Chicago & Northern
Illinois. “This technology will be useful when our volunteers are delivering
relief items to communities affected by disasters like tornadoes and floods,
and also during preparedness activities, such as our smoke alarm installation
