The Dallas Morning News reports AT&T sends out employees to help with Hurricane Ian rescue

From The Dallas Morning News:

A week before Hurricane Ian ravaged Fort Meyers and surrounding areas of Florida, AT&T sent in about 500 volunteers with equipment to prep for the incoming natural disaster.

The volunteer group is known as the Network Disaster Recovery team, a group of AT&T employees who volunteer to set up emergency internet service to help first responders communicate with other first responders and with people who need help. AT&T has invested more than $600 million in the program since its inception in 1991.

“If you’re stuck on a roof but don’t have service, you can’t call anyone to tell them you need help,” said AT&T’s network lead Chris Sambar.

When the volunteers arrived in Florida, they came equipped with generators, large and small satellites, equipment to pump water out of areas, giant dehumidifiers and refueling vehicles. They also sent up drones to survey damage to cell towers.
