Sammy Drayton, southeast district manager for Verizon, explains what services the cell service provider is offering with their Wireless Emergency Communication Center at Bluffton High School on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2016 after Hurricane Matthew.

Verizon has set up a Wireless Emergency Communication Center at Bluffton High School, 12 H.E. McCracken Circle in Bluffton.

Wireless Emergency Communication Centers are generator-powered mobile units that have device charging and computer workstations, and wireless phones, tablets and other devices to contact friends, family and other important contacts over the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.

Technicians will also be available to troubleshoot and charge up wireless phone batteries that survived the storm and/or have lost power.

Additionally, Verizon Wireless Communication Stores has opened its company-owned stores in the impacted areas of Beaufort and Hilton Head to provide free local and long distance calls, phone charging and phone troubleshooting to all local residents, regardless of their personal wireless provider.

To find their nearest Verizon Wireless store, residents can visit Verizon online at http://www.verizonwireless.com/stores.

There is also a charging station next to AT&T in Shelter Cove Towne Centre on Hilton Head Island.
