LOS ANGELES, Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Charity Tunes, LLC, the American Red Cross and Blackline GPS, Inc. are pleased to announce the partnership between the American Red Cross and Blackline GPS, Inc. will continue to be fully funded, with special thanks to Charity Tunes, LLC.
Since 2009, the American Red Cross has utilized Blackline's tracking system and emergency service management for American Red Cross vehicles and personnel in the National Capital Region. This platform has been monumental for efficient communication, dispatch of aid and distribution of resources in a disaster or emergency situation.
The American Red Cross has long recognized the value of coordinating a multitude of physical resources, while simultaneously coordinating multi-vehicle dispatch enabled by Blackline's leading telematics platform. "Today, with the generosity of Charity Tunes, their donation will support the ongoing service costs of Blackline products used by the American Red Cross for tracking vehicles and personnel," said Clark Swanson, President of Blackline GPS.
The founder of Charity Tunes, DJ Bartman said, "We are pleased to be in a position to help the American Red Cross through our ongoing sponsorship. Blackline is only the first of many programs at the American Red Cross that Charity Tunes can support through music." He continued, "This is a great opportunity for all consumers who buy music online to purchase with positivity, knowing all net proceeds from their purchase, both downloads and physical CD's, can go to the Red Cross."
The American Red Cross of the National Capital Region is on call 24 hours a day 365 days a year to respond to disasters affecting the region's estimated 5 million inhabitants. On average the Red Cross responds to one disaster every day. Tracking vehicles and personnel is crucial as they react to all varieties of disasters and community situations.
