Natural Disaster Relief
Our mission is to support our communities in times of special need, such as in the event of natural disasters that affect the people and markets we serve.
National, regional and local governments, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) utilize Trimble technologies in areas including land, asset and forestry management; provision of active geodetic infrastructure; monitoring of dams, volcanoes, and earthquake faults; and disaster recovery. When major natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, wildfires, and floods occur, Trimble has a long history of donating money, time, and equipment to assist communities in the recovery effort.
Trimble has provided technologies and data used to combat public health emergencies, improve quality of life, and create more responsive systems.
