HURRICANE DORIAN: Bulletin #1
BTC is reminding the public that the heavy winds and rain which may affect the island due to the passage of Hurricane Dorian, may cause some of the company’s cables to come loose from poles or to be shifted out of position.
In most cases where this occurs, if the cable is not broken, service will remain uninterrupted. BTC is therefore strongly appealing to members of the public not to cut or otherwise damage these cables.
Instead, the company is asking that all such occurrences be reported to its Local Network Response and Recovery Center (LNRRC) at242-225-5282 or 242-225-1202 and a crew will be dispatched to carryout repairs as soon as it is safe to do so.
BTC is also appealing to the public not to burn leaves or other debris under its cables as this could cause severe damage and disrupt service.
