Update: Hurricane Irma - TSF deploys first connection in Saint-Martin 

Prepositioned in Guadeloupe some 24 hours following the passage of Hurricane Irma, Télécoms Sans Frontières' team on the ground finally obtained authorisation from officials on 10th September allowing them to deploy out to Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthélémy.

A first Emergency Response Team arrived yesterday in Saint-Martin and worked throughout the night to set up our first satellite connection in the island's Coordination Centre. As the terrestrial network remains unstable across the island, the deployment of our terminal will allow relief workers to coordinate medical evacuations, conveyance of material and human assistance, and the provision of emergency accommodation.

Discussions are underway with the island's authorities to install further connections across Saint-Martin, including access for inhabitants.

A second team is being dispatched to Saint-Barthélémy today (12/09) to work alongside relief bodies and rebuild family links across the island as appropriate.

We will of course be keeping you updated throughout the course of our mission, but if you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to email us at marketing@pccwglobal.com for any further information.
