AT&T Wireless reaches out

AT&T Wireless says it has joined in relief effort to help the people of Grenada.
An aircraft chartered by AT&T Wireless landed in Grenada on Friday 10th September, carrying emergency medical supplies, food, and clothing as part of the company’s regional response to provide assistance for the hurricane-ravaged island. {{more}}
A team of engineers and other technical specialists based in Puerto Rico, where the company’s regional headquarters are located, also arrived on this flight to assess damage and commence work to restore wireless communication to the island.
The aircraft returned to Puerto Rico in order to replenish supplies, and returned to Grenada on Monday, September 13.
The company says it has taken the decision to coordinate its relief efforts regionally with Vice President for the Caribbean, Stephanie Barriault, going to Grenada with the team in order to assess the situation first hand.
AT&T Wireless St. Vincent and the Grenadines has also contributed by sending much needed supplies to assist the people in its sister island.
Relief efforts are also now in progress for the Cayman Islands, where AT&T plans to send emergency supplies soon.
