Verizon Frontline Provides Support to Hurricane Ida Response
Wednesday, September 01, 2021 | Comments

The Verizon Response Team arrived in Southeastern Louisiana Aug. 30 to deliver Verizon Frontline technology to first responders conducting search and rescue (SAR) and disaster response operations in some of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Ida.

The Verizon Response Team was activated last week and pre-positioned just outside of the expected storm track, enabling a rapid response effort when conditions permitted and allowing the team to quickly distribute mission-critical communications technology to federal, state and local government and public-safety agencies operating in storm-damaged areas of Louisiana.

Collaborating with emergency management officials across impacted regions of the state, the Verizon Response Team has deployed a wide range of Verizon Frontline technology, including satellite pico-cells on trailers (SPOTs), network extenders, routers, mobile hotspots and phones to provide critical voice and data service to public-safety professionals dealing with the devastation left in the wake of the powerful Category 4 storm.

The Verizon Response Team is expected to remain on scene as long as needed to assist public-safety agencies as they continue to conduct SAR operations and deal with widespread power outages, flooding and catastrophic storm damage.
