Did you know that AT&T has more than 30 full-time staffers in the United States and the United Kingdom alone — in charge of a fleet of close to 300 self-contained trailers — that can be deployed to respond to man-made and “naturally caused” disasters?

Indeed, the company has invested more than $600 million in its response program since 1992, alongside “billions” of dollars of investments in the telecommunications equipment network itself, according to the website describing the program.
