AT&T Provides Customer Relief for Those Affected by Maui Fires

Together with local public safety officials, AT&T deploys communications solutions across the island.

AT&T continues to focus restoration efforts on the western coast of Maui where the company restored its cell site in north Ka’anapali using a portable satellite known as an ECP (Emergency Communications Portable) to provide backhaul. An AT&T Drone Operations pilot is also being used to assess any damage to cell sites using a camera drone.

The FirstNet Response Operations Group (ROG) continues to support public safety and FirstNet subscribers by deploying full-scale communications solutions. As of August 12, they added a Mini CRD (Compact Rapid Deployable) to provide wireless coverage and Wi-Fi from the rooftop of a Ka’anapali hotel at Black Rock Beach. They also worked with the AT&T Network Disaster Recovery team to install a wireless solution for public safety at the Kapalua Airport. Additional resources are on the way to Maui.

AT&T teams and FirstNet liaisons continue to be in contact with federal, state, and local officials regarding deployment efforts to support public safety and the communities in affected areas.
