Emergency response teams have to communicate with many departments
such as fire stations and police within the shortest possible time possible.
During an emergency important communication mediums such as
telephones and mobile services can go down. Even Internet connectivity
using cable or telephone may not function. Satellite Internet connectivity is
one of the best ways to communicate during an emergency. Loved ones
desperately try to connect with family members and friends to know their
whereabouts. As the leading Satellite Internet service provider in America,
HughesNet takes the onus of keeping their services live and running during
an emergency. They take all measures to ensure that emergency response
teams can quickly connect with other essential services to bring quick relief
to people in need.

As the name suggests Satellite Internet connectivity uses satellite and a dish
on the ground to transmit signals which establish the connection with the
World Wide Web. In many recent emergencies such as the San Diego fires,
emergency teams have been using the services of HughesNet with success.
In many of the areas where wild fires have broken out during recent times,
residents did not have broadband connection because the areas are in the
interior parts. HughesNet provides Satellite Internet connections to the
boonies. Affected people were able to connect with the loved ones using e-
mails and VoIP phones. In this way Satellite Internet brings a great deal of
relief to people affected by these fires as well as any other emergencies.
Emergency vehicles can use the satellite dish for communication purposes.
There have been many incidents in United States where Satellite Internet
connectivity has brought great relief during emergencies. During the
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina many emergency response vehicles were
fitted with transportable broadband satellites. The best part of Satellite
Internet access is an antenna and a clear view of the Southern sky is all that
is required to get the connection up and running. Irrespective of the
geography of the emergency, HughesNet can offer high speed Internet
access during an emergency. HughesNet offers Continuity of Operations
Solutions (COOP) that is designed to stay operational even when other
terrestrial systems fail. These systems are operational 24/7 and help a great
deal during the time of emergency. The Florida Emergency Management
agency (FLEMA) is an example of one Government agency that uses
HughesNet solutions.

Emergency response teams are well equipped with communication
equipment. The COOP solutions of the company have many different types
of equipment which are designed specifically for use in emergency
situations. Some of the emergency packages are Hughes Internet Access 400
and Hughes Internet Access 300 which come at packages between US$250
and US$500. If emergency response companies do not have the need of
entire packages they can avail equipments and services such as the Network
Gateway device or implementation services. No other Satellite Internet
service provider in America has the reach and capability to offer emergency
service solutions such as HughesNet. The company solves many hurdles that
are faced by emergency workers during an emergency be it a wildfire or a
terrible hurricane like Katrina.
