National Hurricane Conference the next stop on the Skycasters 15th anniversary tour!

Skycasters is pleased to announce the next stop in our 15th Anniversary tour at the National Hurricane Conference in Orlando, Florida being held on March 21 – 24th.  The National Hurricane Conference focuses on preparedness and the rebuilding in the aftermath of a disaster.  Their goal is to improve hurricane preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation.

When disaster strikes one of the most important things is for communications to be up and running within minutes.  First Responders, Disaster Recovery Teams, Medical Personnel, Volunteers all depend on communications to be able to coordinate and collaborate between various organizations in order to save lives.  That’s why Skycasters continues our commitment to Emergency Management, Disaster Recovery and First Responders with our mobile solutions.  These solutions have auto-pointing systems which makes deployment quick and easy, even for users with little or no technical background.  Upon arriving on site, responders can deploy one of Skycasters mobile solutions and have internet access within 10 minutes allowing search and rescue to begin within just minutes.

Skycasters also just recently released new Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans which meet the unique needs when disasters happen.

To check out more of Skycasters, mobile solutions including our new rental options, be sure to stop by our space Vehicle B where we will have one of our 1.2m Mobile Satellite Trailers (MST).

We all know that Hurricanes, earth quakes, floods and other natural disasters are just part of life but it pays to be prepared.  If your company or organization doesn’t have a back-up internet connection or disaster recovery plan, please stop by and see what Skycasters can do for you!
