THE STORY:

My name is Alex Stephens and I am a Life Scout from Boy Scout Troop 154 in Fremont.  I am currently  seeking donations for some or all of the funds that will be required to carry out my project.

My project is to help Los Gatos C.E.R.T. program. I will be directing volunteers to install an alternative off grid solar panel power system for Los Gatos C.E.R.T.(Community Emergency Response Team), it will provide electricity to power Ham radios, lights, WiFi, a cellphone charging station, and allow citizens to visit the Red Cross web site to contact loved ones at the C.E.R.T. command center. The solar system will provide power until gas generators arrive. We will mount a smaller solar panel on a tripod made out of crutches and various recycled pieces. We will mount solar panels on top a shed. We will install cabling and route power to the devices that need power. The shed will house the tripod and other equipment such as the charge controller, inverter, battery bank, and a wireless hotspot. The shed is provided by Los Gatos C.E.R.T program.

 

 And what does C.E.R.T. do? Well C.E.R.T. becomes active in a natural disaster, for example a earthquake, C.E.R.T. will do basic First Aid, light search and rescue, and basic building damage assessment. 

 

Help me help the community of Los Gatos by donating to my project. I am asking for 10 to 20 dollar donations toward my project. Please help me reach my goal of 2500 dollars. I am very grateful for any monetary donations you can provide for my Eagle Project.  Your assistance and thoughtfulness is deeply appreciated.
