John Stratton, president of Verizon Enterprise Solutions, said: "We appreciate being a trusted adviser to many of the businesses and government agencies that are now preparing to protect citizens and ensure speedy recovery in the storm's aftermath. Our government clients at the state, local and federal levels are already playing crucial pre-storm roles, and we will provide ongoing support for the many businesses and government agencies that are now deploying. Our clients depend on us to support their global technology and communications needs 24/7, and we are ready."The executives stressed that in addition to serving customers, the safety of Verizon employees is equally important. Many steps have and will be taken to prevent or minimize problems on the company's communications networks. Planning for crises takes place year- round. Verizon has invested $30.5 billion over the past two years to build, maintain and fortify its wireless and wireline infrastructure for such events.
