We mobilize Verizon Frontline drones, charging stations, WiFi hotspots, devices, special equipment, emergency vehicles and more to help enable mission-critical communications for local, state and federal agencies across the U.S. First responder customers with wireless priority service should utilize *272 or download the Priority Telecommunications Services app when placing calls.

Wildfire season started early this year and the Dixie Fire is now the largest single wildfire in California history...We hope this offer will give our customers the peace of mind they deserve, so they can focus on more important things during this difficult time.
