Cradlepoint Donates $25K to Leary Firefighters Foundation
Tuesday, May 05, 2020 | Comments

Cradlepoint announced a donation of $25,000 to the Leary Firefighters Foundation, which works with fire departments across the country to survey their technology needs and fill in funding gaps.

This 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 internet of things (IoT)-based routing solutions for access to the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) and other nationwide public-safety broadband networks.

Cradlepoint's FirstConnect donations focus on charities dedicated to improving the lives of first responders and their families.

Cradlepoint selected the Leary Firefighters Foundation as a FirstConnect charity in 2019. Today's donation recognizes its investments in training programs and cutting-edge technology to help firefighters be safer and more effective.

"Technology in firefighting is changing the face of the job and saving the lives of citizens as well as firefighters," said Denis Leary, founder of The Leary Firefighters Foundation. "Over the last 20 years, advances in infrared cameras, computers and tablets have allowed firefighters to not only work in much higher realms of safety and confidence but also given them the ability to relay streams of information in emergency situations. Contributions like this allow us to take these major steps forward with best-in-class solutions."
