When natural disasters strike, leaving communities devastated and facing harsh realities, Sprint and our employees are there to help.
We have a long history of providing assistance through vital communications support, network preparedness, corporate giving and employee support.
We provide critical communication and connectivity to government agencies, the military and first responders so they can communicate across agencies, jurisdictions and regions in some of the most hazardous environments.
In 2002, Sprint created the Sprint Emergency Response Team — an industry first — to provide immediate restoration of wireless voice, data and IP service, along with Sprint mobile broadband devices and fully charged Sprint Direct Connect phones to facilitate coordination among disaster relief and emergency response agencies, public safety officials, and medical personnel for communities affected by natural disasters.
Our company and employees also have a history of taking swift action and providing donations to the American Red Cross to support emergency relief and rebuilding efforts. Sprint proudly joins other corporations nationwide as a member of the Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program, providing a yearly gift toward a Red Cross funding base.
