Emergency Connection

Verizon Wireless activated a mobile cell site, pictured, to boost wireless coverage for crews battling the Promontory Fire.

At the request of Gila County Emergency Operations, the company sent Sundancer the Cell on Light Truck (COLT) to the Christopher Creek area.

The COLT is bred specifically for rapid and short-term network response and enables emergency response teams and other Verizon Wireless customers to make more calls.

The company maintains a fleet of COLTs and Cell on Wheels (COWs) for emergency response.
