Monday, January 07, 2013 | Comments

The Denise Amber Lee Foundation received a second grant from Motorola Solutions as part of the Motorola Solutions Foundation’s Public Safety and Security Institute. Through the grant, the Denise Amber Lee Foundation will continue to raise public awareness of the importance to establish nationwide uniform training and certification standards for all 9-1-1 personnel answering or dispatching a citizen’s plea for help.

“We are ecstatic to have a partner of Motorola’s stature in our mission,” said Nathan Lee, president of the Denise Amber Lee Foundation. “The fact that they have awarded this grant to us two years in a row, and in fact, increased it this year to $15,000, gives us verification and encouragement that we are making a valuable contribution to the 9-1-1 system and public safety. The first person a screaming mother reaches out to, a 9-1-1 call-taker, must be highly trained and certified to handle this unique and life-saving situation.”

Through the Public Safety and Security Institute, the Motorola Solutions Foundation serves as an investor, convener and global activator on issues that affect the safety of communities and security of countries worldwide.
