Deployment History

Overview of NDR's WTC recovery site across the Hudson River from Manhattan.

Prior to the World Trade Center disaster, the NDR Team had never been fully deployed (AT&T has never lost an entire central office). On September 11, 2001, AT&T activated the NDR Team for its first full-scale disaster response. The team and the recovery equipment arrived in northern New Jersey early on September 12. The recovery equipment was positioned and turned up to receive service fifty-three hours later.

NDR has provided its equipment and members of the team in response to smaller scale problems affecting the AT&T Network. Those partial and precautionary deployments included responses to fires, flooding, an earthquake, a gas line explosion, and a train derailment. The NDR Team has also provided emergency communications support for a variety of humanitarian relief efforts.
