Company Encourages Customers to Prepare, Offers Communication Tips
NEW YORK, NY – October 1, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ – AT&T* is ready for Hurricane Joaquin with an arsenal of disaster response equipment and personnel on standby.
AT&T has started its storm preparedness process as we closely monitor Hurricane Joaquin. The storm is expected to impact the New Yorkarea U.S. over the next few days. AT&T has tested and topped-off fuel for cell-site generators, installed and tested high-capacity back-up batteries at cell sites, and installed “Quick Connect Generator Plugs” at cell sites. It has also staged other emergency response equipment in strategic locations. Its national reliability center is monitoring outages 24/7 for quick action.
AT&T has also improved the network redundancy in storm-prone areas. It has installed more generators at critical cell towers and switching facilities, and moving electronics key to network operations above expected flood levels. AT&T is also coordinating with state emergency management and Power Company officials to prepare for this storm.
“Customers rely on us, especially during major storms,” said Marissa Shorenstein, New York State President of AT&T. ”That’s why we practice readiness drills and simulations through the year. We do all we can to have our networks prepared when severe weather strikes. We’ve worked for the past few days to position equipment and crews to respond to the storm. We’re closely linked with New York City and State public officials in their storm response efforts. With a storm of this size, we may have some outages. But if service goes down, we’ll do all we can to get it back up as fast as possible.”
The AT&T National Disaster Recovery (NDR) program is one of the industry’s largest and most advanced disaster response programs. It includes more than 320 technology and equipment trailers that can be quickly deployed to respond to disasters. The NDR team works with local AT&T network personnel, regional emergency operations centers and local response centers to keep service going until permanent repairs are made.
Just as we prepare our networks and personnel, AT&T encourages customers to consider the following recommendations in the wake of the storm.
