a leading provider of Mobile Device Charging Stations, has announced the
launch of its Emergency
Preparedness & Response Division (“EPR”).
This new initiative will be focused on providing Federal, Regional and
Local governments and organizations with Mobile Device Charging Station
solutions, critical to maintaining communication and connectivity with
Responders, Evacuees and others during emergency situations.
As a key part of the launch of EPR, goCharge is introducing its new Solar-Powered
line of Charging Stations-a Kiosk featuring 10 secured lockers, and
a Hi-Top Table. Each Station provides multiple charging cords and ports
and can operate either completely independent of “the grid”, or directly
connected to an electrical receptacle.
David Walke, CEO of goCharge, said, “Whether a natural disaster, a
human- caused disaster, or a major utility failure, electricity is often
extremely limited, or non-existent. Through EPR, we are able to provide
a solution that addresses this critical need; our brand new Solar-Powered
goCharge has named Scott Holmquist Director of EPR. Mr. Holmquist has a
distinguished 35-year career in Fire and Emergency services, and is
currently Managing Partner of Pursuit Consulting, which provides
Emergency support, services and counsel for government agencies as well
as private companies. Scott has spent his entire career in fire and
emergency services, retiring from both as Assistant Deputy Director of
Cal Fire (California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection), as
well as having represented Pacific Gas & Electric as Public Safety
Specialist for natural and human-caused disasters and other events.
Scott will be joined in leading the EPR program by Karyn Greenblatt, VP
of Sales at goCharge. “I am very excited to join goCharge in this
important initiative”, Mr. Holmquist said. ”Being prepared in natural
and human caused disasters is essential. Emergency Management
organizations that provide services and support for communities is
equally essential. In an effort to keep citizens, evacuees and
responders connected to families and loved ones, as well as to be able
to access emergency digital and internet communications, mobile device
charging stations become vital.”
goCharge is formally introducing its Solar-Powered
Charging Stations to the market at the Governors’ Hurricane
Conference from May 12-May 17th at the Palm Beach County
Convention Center in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Mr. Walke concluded, ”goCharge knows how important this program is to
everyone affected by disasters and emergencies, and we are passionate
about being of valued service. Indeed, we will be donating a portion of
revenues generated by this Division to support the wonderful
organizations dedicated to this critical effort.”
