Mobile Beacon Announces New Grant Aimed at Improving Safety, Learning in Schools.

May, 2011
Mobile Beacon, one of the nation’s leaders in providing low-cost 4G mobile broadband service exclusively to the nonprofit and education sectors, is today announcing a new pilot grant program that donates a broadband security camera system to qualified schools or school districts in select areas of the country.

Grant recipients will receive up to four professional-grade security cameras operated over Mobile Beacon’s 4G broadband service that will help enable 24 hour a day monitoring of selected areas of a school building.

“These cameras, although a non-traditional use of broadband access, still play a crucial role in a school’s educational mission,” said Katherine Messier, Managing Director of Mobile Beacon. “They can help foster a safe learning environment for students, teachers and administrators by helping to deter unauthorized access,” Ms. Messier added.

This grant program is available in a total of 51 cities in 22 states* including:

Mobile, AL; Bullhead City, Lake Havasu, Phoenix, AZ; Hot Springs, Little Rock, AR; Fresno, Palm Springs, Santa Rosa, Yuba City, CA; Colorado Springs, Denver, La Junta, CO; Bradenton, Fort Myers, Fort Pierce, Melbourne, Ocala, Sarasota, FL; Hilo, Kona, HI; Boise, ID; Fort Wayne, South Bend, IN; Des Moines, IA; Emporia, Great Bend, Hays, Salina, KS; Holt, Lansing, MI; Atlantic City, NJ; Albuquerque, NM; Columbus, Toledo, Youngstown, OH; Enid, Lawton, OK; Lancaster, York, PA; Providence, RI; Memphis, TN; Austin, Killeen, Waco, Sherman, TX; Salt Lake City, UT; Kennewick, Seattle, Spokane, Yakima, WA.
