During emergency situations, Sprint works closely with local public safety agencies and hardens its networks in impacted areas so that critical communications are available to its customers before, during and after an emergency situation.
INFOGRAPHIC: See how a wireless call works. There is a lot that goes into completing every wireless call – a service is vitally dependent on commercial power and Local Exchange Carriers (LECs). During emergency situations and inclement weather, there is potential for these resources to be impaired and severely impacted.
