But as always, keeping customers connected no matter the weather is what we do. Verizon’s network is designed to withstand extreme weather, with battery and generator backup systems in critical locations to minimize the risk of service disruption if commercial power is lost.
Safety is our number one priority, and our engineers are working around the clock to respond quickly to any network issues so that our customers can stay connected when it matters most.

Meet the V Team
We shared the story of Priyansh Nigam, a Senior Manager with our Tech Product Management team based in Atlanta. Priyansh oversees the development of our Gizmo Watches. The incredible irony is that his son, who’s on the autism spectrum wears the watch and Priyansh shared an incredible story of how it one day helped bring him back to safety.
Citizen Verizon news
Verizon was invited to participate as evaluators of the Junior Achievement Company Program.
The program empowers high school students to fill a need or solve a problem in their community. V Teamers Fabio Gomes Belem, Priscila Signore Arruda and Paulo Pontin had the opportunity to meet the winning team “PSA Artesanais” from Bagre, a small town in Northern Brazil. They developed products utilizing the seeds of the Açai fruit to make handicrafts like earrings, rings and more.
These products not only help the environment, in terms of avoiding waste, but they’ll also help change the lives of many people in their city that can now manufacture these products for a living.
The team was awarded a trip to visit Verizon’s Headquarters in São Paulo.
Congratulations to these innovative thinkers!
