AmpliVox Gift to American Red Cross Provides Megaphones for Disaster Teams

To enhance communication at disaster scenes and other vital operations, AmpliVox Sound Systems is providing its signature Mity-Meg Rechargeable Megaphones to the American Red Cross. AmpliVox has donated twelve of the versatile portable sound systems, ten for disaster relief teams and two for Red Cross events sponsored by its Communications Department.

The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need, in the US and internationally.

The non-government agency responds to approximately 70,000 disasters in the United States every year, ranging from home fires that affect a single family, to hurricanes that affect tens of thousands, to earthquakes that impact millions.

In these events, the Red Cross provides shelter, food, health, and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet.

AmpliVox’s Mity-Meg Rechargeable Megaphones will provide reliable, powerful sound amplification for Red Cross efforts, improving crowd control and communication between team members.

The SB602R Mity-Meg is a lightweight, weather-resistant design unit, delivering sound coverage of up to a mile with talk, whistle, and siren modes.

An integrated lithium-ion rechargeable battery and AmpliVox-exclusive power indicator light keeps the unit running for up to eight hours of typical use.

Weighing just two pounds, the Mity-Meg carries easily with the included wrist strap and comfortable pistol grip.

"We are grateful for the generous gift from AmpliVox Sound Systems,” said Harley Jones, Regional Disaster Officer, American Red Cross of Chicago & Northern Illinois.

"This technology will be useful when our volunteers are delivering relief items to communities affected by disasters like tornadoes and floods, and also during preparedness activities, such as our smoke alarm installation rallies."

Six Communication Tips for School Safety and Educational Success

How do you put forth a clear voice and strong image when communicating in and around schools?

Here are six proven tips.

#1 Safety Always Comes First

In any school emergency from weather to man-made crisis, be ready to communicate indoors or out with powerful battery powered PA systems.

Give teachers, coaches and administrators the voice reinforcement they need.

AmpliVox extends your voice with quality PA products designed for small audiences or large, indoors or out for emergencies or everyday learning and general communication.

#2 Give Yourself Some Help

Many people overestimate the power of their own voice. Even students with perfect hearing can miss up to one third of what teachers are saying from poor acoustics.

Teachers who use PA systems get kids attention more easily and also experience less voice strain at the end of each day. PA systems for schools can be affordable, easy to use and a huge benefit to your message clarity.

#3 Know Your Audience Size and Room Layout
When speaking inside a classroom or auditorium, always plan for room acoustics and layout as well as audience size.

There are AmpliVox systems designed to reach audiences from 50 to 10,000 with clear, natural sound.

#4 Bring Portable Power to Outdoor Events
Athletic fields, playgrounds or special events are no obstacle for being heard when they use battery powered megaphones or portable devices on wheels or tripods.

For example, the AmpliVox Half-Mile Hailer lets your audience hear you loud and clear from a distance.

#5 Be Ready for Multimedia
Adding music, recorded messages or multiple speakers to your school presentation is not a problem with AmpliVox systems. They project auxiliary sound with the same strength and clarity of your own voice.

Many students report getting more pumped up while listening to a professional grade sound system.

#6 Create a Professional Image with Stylish Lectern
A stylish lectern can enhance your image in the classroom or out.

AmpliVox offers models ranging from table top to freestanding, with sound reinforcement or without, in wood, acrylic, steel or weatherproof hard shell plastic.

To further enhance your image and promote school spirit lecterns can even be imprinted with your schools logo. Be prepared to support school safety, enhance learning and pump up school spirit with quality PA system.
