Aruba qualified engineers needed to volunteer as part of response to Oklahoma tornado.

Disaster Tech Logo

Disaster Tech Lab is currently preparing to deploy to Oklahoma to assist in the disaster response work there.

We will be building wifi networks (indoor and outdoor) to provide communication services to other disaster response organisations (private as well as public sector).

We already have volunteers from our "pool" standing by but need more man/woman power and are looking for engineers familiar with Aruba Networks equipment (AP 93's, AP175's, MSR2000's, series 3500 mobility switches & Clearpass) to assist in building these networks.

We welcome volunteers from across the US but if you live witihin driving disance to the disaster area and only have one day, half a day or an evening to volunteer that's also welcome.

Details will be going up on our website (http://disastertechlab.org/) in the next few hours but in the meantime please email me for more details on: contact_at_disastertechlab_dot_org

Thank you.

Re: Aruba qualified engineers needed to volunteer as part of response to Oklahoma tornado.

Nice initiative ! I thought about it earlier today morning - to volunteer in order to deploy Wi-Fi in network deployments...but IM living in Israel :( ...if there were special light for volunteers from Europe - i was joining to the effort.

If a technical assistance in configuration needed from remote - i will be glad to give a hand!

Re: Aruba qualified engineers needed to volunteer as part of response to Oklahoma tornado.

No flights from Israel unfortunately.

However we're shortly launching a "volunteer recruitment drive" with as goal to build a network of volunteers who can assist us with deployments following disasters in their community our country.

That way there will be no need to fly people halfway around the world.

If you're interested in volunteering for that please send me an email (the address is in the original post).

We can do with some volunteers based in the Middle-East.

Re: Aruba qualified engineers needed to volunteer as part of response to Oklahoma tornado.

Our volunteers have been working hard in the Oklahoma City area for the last two weeks now.

We've installed wifi networks (using Aruba Networks equipment) in a number of locations using VSAT as backhaul.

The lastest project as part of this deployment is a 10-seat public internet facility in the First Baptist Church in Moore.

KFOR Oklahoma News ran a feature on this tonight:
