The Gridless Team was recently featured in New Jersey Cops Magazine, detailing our deployment after Hurricane Sandy. While we were deployed, we worked extensively with the members of the NJ State Policemen’s Benevolent Association (PBA). Here are some of the highlights from the article:
“When first responders need energy in disasters or any other field situation, they can go Gridless.”
“We were able to provide food, shelter and a lot of services for first responders,” said recently retired NJ State PBA Executive Board Member Ed Wiemmer, who ran the PBA-sponsored relief village that served first responders during clean-up in the months following Sandy. “But we couldn’t provide any power. Then, [Gridless] came along and really saved the day.”
“Gridless Power was used to charge cell phones, laptops, communications equipment, search and rescue lights and other equipment on the ground. They found a group of FEMA workers from Ohio who had no way to call their families to let them know they were OK until Gridless Power showed up.”
Thanks to New Jersey Cops Magazine for featuring us! We are proud of the work that we do and glad to be a part of New Jersey’s recovery effort.
