Sprint Joins T-Mobile in Hurricane Preparations

It’s nice to see the carriers come together for a good cause every now and then. If you haven’t watched the news lately, Hurricane Irene is set to hit the southeastern part of the States, namely in South and North Carolina, and Virginia. We’ve already learned that T-Mobile is doing their part, as they’ve sent crisis resources and teams to the areas that may be affected. FEMA has also released a preparedness app, and now it appears that Sprint wants to help as well. They’ve deployed teams up and down the eastern seaboard, to prepare for power outages, flooding, and other disasters. As the saying goes, “better safe than sorry.”

So are any of our readers residing in the eastern area? What precautions are you taking for the hurricane? Leave a comment below!
