FreedomVoice, Front Range Internet Inc. (FRII), and PCG Telecom announced their collective donation of a communications system for the Disaster Response Donation and Collection Center in Larimer County. The phone system consisting of Internet service, VoIP telephones, telephone service – including full installation, will continue to aid recovery efforts of the wildfires that impacted much of Colorado over the summer.

FRII provided the labor and materials to install the system in the Foothills Fashion Mall located at 215 E. Foothills Parkway in Fort Collins; they are continuing to donate the Internet connectivity. FreedomVoice donated the Voice over IP (VoIP) services, and Braun Mincher of PCG Telecom donated VoIP phones. FreedomVoice and PCG Telecom are longstanding strategic partners with FRII.

“We offered to help because this is our community, our family and friends,” explained the FRII team spearheading the communications technology. “We know the people who are affected; we are very connected to this community. Larimer County called us because they knew we could get it done,” said John Stark, Business Development Manager at FRII. Braun Mincher of PCG Telecom echoed these comments saying “This is a community which has given us so many opportunities over the years, and so this is our opportunity to help our neighbors in need through the use of our technology and related resources.” For FreedomVoice, “These are our friends, and as soon as they asked, we said yes. Helping others and giving back is at the core of our organization,” said Eric Thomas, CEO.
