Beyond Lucid Technologies Announces "Response for Responders" Awareness & Fundraising Campaign
Raising funds to help heroes who respond to natural disasters and domestic terrorism
WALNUT CREEK, CA (DECEMBER 18, 2012): Beyond Lucid Technologies, the company behind MEDIVIEW™—a mission-critical documentation platform serving the ambulance, fire, and industrial emergency response industries—today announced "Response for Responders," a campaign to highlight the heroism of EMS and Fire professionals who rush to the public's rescue, risking their own lives and homes during disasters like Hurricane Sandy, and acts of domestic terrorism like the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut and Portland, Oregon.
Beyond Lucid Technologies will donate 5% of net revenue on all software sales between December 2012 and June 2013—and pass on 100% of all donations collected by the company—to regional nonprofits helping Responders rebuild, and the National Firefighters Endowment’s Responder Relief Fund. A portion of the donation will also go to the family of Otsego (Michigan) Fire Captain and AMR paramedic Steve Stevenson, who died while engaged in Hurricane Sandy rescue activities.
Jonathon Feit (CEO) and Christian Witt (President & CTO), co-founders of Beyond Lucid Technologies, said: "During our desperate moments, First Responders are there for us, but they aren’t often ones to ask for help. We should be there for them now, when they need our support. Twelve TransCare medics lost homes while they were out saving others’ during Sandy. Our friends at American Medical Response went into the storm from across the nation. The commitment we owe to those who rescue us must go beyond the holidays, so we invite the entire American community to join our ‘Response for Responders’ campaign. Innovative technologies can only go so far – the awareness and funds we’ll raise together can help EMS and Fire professionals get back on their feet, and stay safe in 2013 and beyond.”
