AT&T PROVIDING FREE CALLS TO HURRICANE VICTIMS

 AT&T PROVIDING FREE CALLS TO HURRICANE VICTIMS
 MIAMI, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Every day since Hurricane Andrew


struck, AT&T and Cellular One vans have been roaming the streets of the devastated areas of South Dade providing free local and long distance service to the people of the area. Today, 16,000 calls later, dozens of AT&T volunteers continue to bring free three-to-five minute long- distance calls to the military and consumers throughout the area.
 The service is being provided through portable AT&T cellular phones which allow AT&T volunteers to bring the phone directly to the consumer. Several vans have been and are in the following neighborhoods:
 -- Cutler Ridge and Metro Zoo areas
 -- Naranja Lakes area
 -- Goulds area
 -- Richmond Heights area
 -- Homestead area
 -- Florida City areas
 In addition, the vans are working two shifts daily to accommodate civilians and military in the Tent City and military areas.
 The military is assisting AT&T teams in locating large concentrations of civilians in the Tent City areas during the day. In the evening AT&T is bringing the service to soldiers, many of whom are working 16-hour days.
 In addition to the free cellular calls AT&T has also been giving away, from its vans, its new AT&T TeleTicket Service. The TeleTicket is a pre-paid calling service which allows for a ten-minute domestic local and long-distance call or a two-minute international call.
