Globe Telecom said Wednesday that the company’s disaster-preparedness program has enabled the telecommunications provider to be fully equipped in the face calamity threat coming from super-typhoon Haiyan, which is expected to hit the country by Thursday.

The company’s disaster-preparedness initiative includes its network-resiliency program to ensure that subscribers are provided with text, call and data services even when a disaster strikes, said Yoly Crisanto, Head of Globe Corporate Communications. Crisanto also noted that the company’s network modernization program also involves the deployment of advanced equipment that further strengthened its network resiliency and redundancy measures.

“Telecommunication services become even more critical in times of natural calamities. We want to assure our subscribers that the Globe network is disaster-ready following resiliency and redundancy measures we have put in place and our network personnel are well-equipped to address challenges that the typhoon could bring us,” she said.

She emphasized that the company’s technical personnel will be available 24/7 to address any network-related concern especially during these times.

Crisanto said another vital component of the company’s disaster-preparedness program also involve employee-safety measures implemented all over the country as well as close coordination with national and local governments.

The company is also well-prepared to undertake community-disaster response operations that could include "Libreng Tawag" centers through Globe Bridging Communities, the telecommunication company’s CSR arm,  she added.
