Additionally, T-Mobile has confirmed that it’s ready to respond to outages when it’s safe to do so. There are engineering and rapid response teams that can activate emergercy equipment like portable generators, Cell On Wheels, fuel trucks, and more. T-Mo has also deployed more permanent generators in Florida and additional infrastructure to hundreds of towers to help minimize network interruptions.

You can text MICHAEL to 90999 to give $10 to the American Red Cross, text DISASTER to 20222 to donate $10 to the Volunteer Florida Foundation, or text DISASTER25 to 20222 to donate $25 to the Volunteer Florida Foundation. These donations will be charged to your next T-Mobile bill.
