August 03, 2022

September 12, 2022 - Mosquito Fire

Today, T-Mobile’s community support team is in northern California helping impacted communities during the Mosquito Fire spanning Placer County and El Dorado County. Team members are bringing emergency equipment — including a small truck and a Wi-Fi trailer with pre-lit devices, chargers and charging stations and more — to emergency shelters at the Cameron Park Community Center in Cameron Park, Calif.; Sierra College in Rocklin, Calif. and Green Valley Community Church in Placerville, Calif. as needed.

Our network is currently not experiencing any impacts due to the fire, and our engineers will continue to closely monitor the situation.

September 6, 2022 - Mill Fire

Our thoughts are with those who have been impacted by the Mill Fire in northern California. Over the weekend, T-Mobile teams deployed to two emergency shelters: Karuk Wellness Center in Yreka, Calif. and College of the Siskiyous in Weed, Calif. Teams set up vehicles that provided free Wi-Fi, device charging banks, multi-USB charging cables, and more.

Our network is functioning normally with no impacts, and we continue to closely monitor the situation.

August 3, 2022 - McKinney Fire

We are saddened to see the devastation caused by the McKinney Fire in northern California near the Oregon border. As the fire causes overwhelming damage, T-Mobile is closely monitoring the situation, working with relief agencies and taking steps to provide support to customers and communities.

T-Mobile teams have deployed to two emergency shelters: Weed Community Center in Weed, Calif. and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ashland, Ore. Teams set up emergency response vehicles equipped with activated devices, chargers, charging cables, free Wi-Fi and charging stations.

We know that connectivity is of utmost importance during critical times such as this. Our network is functioning normally with no impacts, and we have engineers continuing to assess and monitor equipment.
