Monday, December 19, 2022 | Comments

As first responders across the nation dealt with everything from winter storms to hurricanes and wildfires in 2022, the Verizon Frontline Crisis Response Team was available to help public safety agencies on the front lines with the mission-critical communications capabilities they needed to achieve their missions.

The Verizon Frontline Crisis Response Team is composed primarily of former first responders and military personnel who are dedicated to supporting public safety customers during emergencies at no cost. They deployed in support of nearly 750 public safety agencies in nearly every state in 2022.

The team provided public safety agencies with nearly 5,500 Verizon Frontline devices and solutions ranging from repeaters, mobile hotspots, routers, smart devices and drones to dozens of deployable satellite solutions such as Satellite Picocells on Trailers (SPOTs) during the deployments.

Major response efforts in 2022 included:

Wildfire response: 187 deployments in support of first responders in 21 states

To help enable mission-critical voice and data service during fire mitigation efforts in locations across the country, the Verizon Frontline Crisis Response Team delivered close to 2,000 Verizon Frontline solutions to public safety agencies in more than 120 communities in 2022.

The Verizon Frontline Crisis Response Team deployed in support of wildland firefighters from California, Arizona and New Mexico to Alaska and Florida.

Hurricane response: 64 deployments across 5 states

The Verizon Frontline Crisis Response Team supported public safety agencies and the communities they serve during two major hurricanes: Ian and Nicole. Hurricane Ian saw nearly 400 Verizon Frontline solutions delivered to more than 70 public safety agencies in southwest Florida.

Additional 2022 deployments:

Verizon Frontline solutions were also deployed in support of public safety agencies during several search and rescue operations, emergency response efforts during six winter storms, dozens of training exercises involving federal, state and local agencies, and large public events such as sporting events and airshows.
