AT&T assists disaster areas


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — AT&T is taking several steps to assist those in need in Moore and the Oklahoma City area after the community was struck by a tornado May 20 and again May 31.

As part of the support, AT&T made a $100,000 contribution to the American Red Cross. Other initiatives include:

• AT&T is organizing employees to help victims of this devastating tornado through disaster relief drives and volunteer opportunities as critical needs are identified.  

• AT&T is waiving voice, data and text overage charges through June 30 for customers in the affected areas.

• The company is continuing its on-the-ground coordination with authorities and emergency response teams as we deploy additional crews and resources, including Cells on Wheels (COWs) and Satellite Cells on Light Trucks (COLTs), to add network capacity in the impacted areas.
