Cricket Nation is proud to be part of AT&T’s efforts to help those affected by Hurricane Irma

To help those affected by Hurricane Irma across Florida, Cricket Wireless is working with our parent company, AT&T, to coordinate volunteers on the ground, secure needed supplies and get network services restored. This recovery will require support from communities and corporations across the country. We are proud to be a subsidiary of AT&T, who just announced a $1.4million contribution to aid communities affected by Hurricane Irma, including a $1 million matching donation to Team Rubicon, $150,000 to Telecoms Sans Frontieres, a group that is working to reestablish connectivity for emergency responders and communities in the Caribbean, and $250,000 to local charities in states impacted by Irma.

Hurricane Irma is expected to reach Florida, and we’re ready with our disaster response equipment and personnel on standby.

 

We’re currently topping off generators at our cell sites with fuel. The sites are equipped with high-capacity back-up batteries. We have staged emergency response equipment and technicians in strategic locations, if needed.  Our national reliability center is monitoring outages for quick action.

 

We are also providing customers free calls to the Dominican Republic and Haiti beginning Sept. 7, 2017 and running through Sept. 10, 2017.  Calls to Puerto Rico are already included in all plans.

 

Stay safe and remember to take these precautions. And if you’re asked to evacuate, please do!
