Disaster Response


Overview

When natural disasters strike leaving communities of people devastated and facing harsh realities, Sprint and our employees have a long history of providing assistance through vital communications support, network preparedness, corporate giving, and employee support.

Sprint provides 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, 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.

Additionally, Sprint and our employees have a history of taking swift action and providing donations to the American Red Cross that 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 in excess of $500,000 toward a Red Cross funding base. With this solid financial foundation from which to draw, the Red Cross can work fast when disaster strikes.
