Telstra – Maintaining Communications Infrastructure
As we know, telecommunications services is one of the most critical services during a recovery effort like this, both for the emergency service response teams and citizens trying to contact family and friends.
Telstra is working to ensure these services are restored to ensure that people can communicate with their loved ones. Telstra is having daily meetings to assess the current situation and emerging threats. Their operational teams are working around the clock to re-establish communications to impacted communities in collaboration with emergency service agencies across the nation, as well as bolster communications for communities at risk (as the fire zones continually move) and at recovery centres.
Telstra has also offered assistance packages to emergency volunteers, citizens and businesses impacted by the fires; Click on the links for further information on Disaster Relief Packages for customers in Vic, NSW and SA.
