Briefs: AT&T to conduct biggest disaster excercise

Jan 25, 2006

AT&T will conduct its largest-ever network disaster recovery exercise in Dallas on Feb. 8, the company said Wednesday.

The telecommunications group said that self-contained equipment trucks will test and evaluate how well the company can support services in the event of a disaster. A total of 43 trailers will be used for the latest exercise in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

AT&T said it has invested over $300 million in its network disaster recovery program, which includes engineers and technicians across the country. The team has been activated 21 times since 1990, including responding to hurricanes Katrina and Rita last year, the San Diego wildfires in 2003 and the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York City.
