Sprint Supports California, Nevada Communities Impacted by Heavy Rains, Snowfall

As Northern California and Nevada continue to withstand heavy rains, flooding and snowfall across the region, Sprint prepared its network to keep customers connected during inclement weather. Nevada declared a state of emergency. Sprint will be donating up to 25 devices for 14 days free of charge to local public safety agencies in need of emergency communications.

“The Sprint network in Northern California and Nevada has been prepared for the weather and we have an emergency response team at the ready should they be needed,” Suehyun Johan Chung, Sprint Northern California President said in a statement. “Our primary focus is to ensure that our customers, employees and all the communities that we serve in the region remain safe and connected during the storms.”

Sprint’s support included actively monitoring the path of the storms while instituting flood prevention measures at Sprint network facilities and retail stores, fully fueled all permanent generators and mobilized portable generators into threatened areas to ensure they’re available to meet the needs caused by the weather and preparing to mobilize Satellite Cell on Light Trucks (SatCOLTs) and Cell Sites on Wheels (COWs) within less than two hours if needed.
