Motorola Solutions Grant Supports Expanded Fire Service Programming

We are proud to announce we received a $25,000 grant from the Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, Inc.

The Motorola Solutions Foundation Grant will allow us to present a programming track for burn-injured first responders, fire service members, and their family members at Phoenix World Burn Congress.

First responders and fire service members, who witness first-hand the devastating impact of fire and severe burn injuries, have unique recovery needs. Many first responders and fire service members return to the “scene of the crime” every day to serve and protect others.

“Phoenix World Burn Congress helped me realize I had something to offer other wives of burn survivor firefighters,” said one attendee. “It gave me a voice of experience I didn’t even know I had.”

The Motorola Solutions Foundation has been a longtime partner of Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors. In the past, they joined IAFF Charitable and the National Foundation for Fallen Firefighters to support the adaptation of the Phoenix SOAR Program to meet the peer suport needs of fire service members.

“Motorola Solutions Foundation is proud to support the work of Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors,” said Matt Blakely, Executive Director of Motorola Solutions Foundation. “As a leading technology company that supports the safety of communities worldwide, we know how important it is to educate tomorrow’s technology professionals as well as enlighten civilians and first responders on today’s safety needs.”

Last year, Motorola Solutions Foundation supported the pilot live-streaming of Phoenix World Burn Congress to attendees to Grand Rapids, MI.
