Be Prepared: Verizon readies itself, customers for Isaac

Hurricane-Image-440.pngLegend has it that Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts, was once asked about Scouting’s time-honored motto “Be Prepared.”


“Be prepared for what?” someone asked.


“Why,” responded Baden-Powell, “any old thing.”


As Tropical Storm (and potentially Hurricane) Isaac barrels through the Gulf of Mexico, Verizon is taking that motto to heart, readying its network and service operations for the worst the storm could possibly deal to our customers in Florida. From testing our backup generators at all of our facilities to readying our fleet of vehicles to respond at a moment’s notice, we’re trying to leave no stone unturned by planning for the worst but hoping for the best.
