As we and many of our northeast coast customers prepare for the storm-related effects of Hurricane Sandy as it makes its expected path up the eastern seaboard, Cricket teams are preparing for possible power outages, flooding and other likely impacts from the storm.
Our engineering, operational and safety and security teams are actively monitoring Hurricane Sandy’s projected path and activating previously prepared emergency plans designed to keep networks operational and customer services operating as normally as possible by strategically staging generators in areas likely to be affected and can be activated quickly to offset the loss of power to cell sites or other company facilities.
For the safety of our customer and employees, we are following procedures to secure and close retail stores and safeguard employees in the affected areas should conditions warrant. Cricket staff members working in areas of the country are on stand-by and can be deployed to the east coast if necessary.
