With hurricane season upon us, it only takes one storm to disrupt our ability to stay
connected. As part of National Hurricane Preparedness Week, (May 25-May
31) Globalstar, Inc. (NYSE MKT:GSAT) encourages all coastal residents
to be ready before a storm approaches. Ensuring reliable communications
should be one of the first preparations businesses and individuals
complete as the 2014 hurricane season begins. For a limited time,
coastal residents can receive a free Globalstar satellite phone with
the purchase of a Globalstar Unlimited service plan.
NOAA forecasters recently released their predictions for the 2014
Atlantic hurricane season. The early outlook calls for 8-13 named
tropical storms. Among those, NOAA predicted 3-6 hurricanes, including
1-2 major hurricanes with Category 3 winds or higher.
“Globalstar is committed to providing lifesaving communications across
the globe,” said Jay Monroe, Globalstar Chairman and CEO. “For
hurricane prone areas, a satellite phone should be part of your
disaster plan. From Superstorm Sandy to Hurricane Katrina, Globalstar’s
affordability, superior voice quality and performance have been
utilized by first responders, energy and oil and gas companies and
everyday people. We never want someone to wish they would have had a
dependable communication device after the fact.”
With the successful launch of the world’s most modern, revitalized
satellite network, Globalstar’s satellite phones not only provide
