Leesburg, VA—October 13, 2022—SimbaCom is assisting with the restoration efforts following Hurricane Ian, which made landfall on September 28 in southwestern Florida as a powerful Category 4 storm. Heavy rain pummeled the region, and a powerful 12- foot storm surge devastated the communities all along the coast. Officials anticipate that recovery and rebuilding efforts will be ongoing for months.
Responding to the need, two SimbaCom employees headed down to Ft. Meyers, which sits at Ground Zero of the catastrophe. The Simba team is partnering with SES, SES Government Services, Walmart, and Amazon to help restore critical communications for first responders so residents can connect with the resources they need.
“Hurricane Ian had a devastating impact on thousands of Floridians,” says Ali Sajjad, President of SimbaCom. “SimbaCom has volunteered to support our teaming partners in the disaster relief effort. We hope and pray that God gives all the families affected by this horrible disaster the courage to bear their loses and the strength to move forward.”
SimbaCom expects their team members to return to the Leesburg area on October 15.
