The rush to get satellite phones to Puerto Rico

Satellite phones ClickAway

With communication in Puerto Rico nearly impossible following the destruction from Hurricane Maria, FEMA, the Red Cross and even ClickAway are shipping satellite phones and other technology to help the devastated island.

“We got an urgent call from San Benito Health Foundation in Hollister to assist with obtaining Globalstar satellite phones as quickly as possible, said Steven Callahan, store manager of ClickAway Monterey. “The phones are headed to hospitals in Puerto Rico to assist those managing patient and supply flow.”

Several days ago FEMA announced it would send the devices  to “every town and city in Puerto Rico” and the Red Cross said it would be shipping in satellite phones as well. Communications were cut to much of the island following Maria’s devastating crossing of Puerto Rico last Wednesday. “The devastation in Puero Rico has set us back nearly 20 to 30 years,” said Puerto Rico Resident Commissioner Jenniffer Gonzalez.

ClickAway has been a carrier of Globalstar mobile satellite phones for several years. Globalstar offers these products to commercial customers and recreational consumers in more than 120 countries around the world. Many land based and maritime industries benefit from Globalstar with increased productivity from remote areas beyond cellular and landline service.
