Verizon Provides Support to Fire Fighting Efforts Around the Country
Tuesday, August 09, 2022 | Comments

With more than 60 wildfires actively burning in more than a dozen states, the Verizon Frontline Response Team continues to deploy mission-critical communications technology in support of public-safety agencies and the nearly 10,000 wildland firefighters currently on the front lines. This year alone, the Verizon Frontline Response Team has deployed nearly 1,000 Verizon Frontline solutions to first responders in 18 states including Alaska, North Carolina, Florida, California, Texas and New Mexico.

Verizon Frontline technology has been delivered to multiple interagency command posts and 39 public-safety agencies operating in nearly 70 communities. This technology provides mission-critical voice and data service to incident managers and firefighters operating in remote areas and helps coordinate fire mitigation efforts. The Verizon Frontline solutions provided by the Verizon Frontline Response Team have included Satellite Picocells on Trailers (SPOTs), routers, network extenders, mobile hotspots, smartphones and more.

“First responders are now battling wildfires year-round, and we remain committed to delivering the reliable and secure communications technology they need to achieve their mission wherever and whenever they need it,” said Cory Davis, director of public-safety operations for Verizon Frontline. “The Verizon Frontline Response Team stands ready to support wildland firefighters across the country as they work tirelessly to protect our communities.”

The Verizon Frontline Response Team has supported federal, state and local agencies at 49 named wildfires this year including Arizona’s Tunnel Fire, New Mexico’s Hermits Peak Fire, Colorado’s Marshall Fire and the Washburn Fire in Yosemite National Park.
