Overview of Disaster Recovery Operations
Since cellular phone service has become so common over the last decade, the interruption of commercial power service to cellular tower sites caused by hurricane, ice/snow storms, flooding, or earthquake, places a critical burden on the ability of rescue personal and those living in the effected area to communicate.
The restoration of cellular phone service is a major priority in any disaster situation. Xtreme Disaster Recovery (XDR) personnel and contractors respond to the area, pickup mobile generator units, deploy those units to cellular tower sites (often times in remote locations), connect them to the site's power supply, and maintain fuel supplies to the site.
Although it may take several weeks, once the commercial power service is restored to an area, XDR contractors recover the equipment and restore original commercial service connections.
