A graduate of our Spring 2017 class, Safeguard Equipment, is running an Indiegogo campaign to help save lives in the rebuilding of Puerto Rico's electrical grid. They are raising money to get Safeguard Equipment's Compass product into the hands of the people who need it most. The Compass is a wearable device that can indicate the presence and directional location of live electrical circuits. As of today, still a majority of the people on the island of Puerto Rico are without power post Hurricane Maria. Both volunteers and electrical workers are working long hours to try to rebuild the electrical grid. Long hours can lead to fatigue, impaired decision-making and judgement, and reduced reaction times which can lead to very serious accidents.
If you have been looking for a smart, impactful way to help support Puerto Rico's rebuilding effort, this is it. Please consider supporting Safeguard Equipment's campaign. Click the link below to be directed to their Indiegogo page.
