 CELLULAR ONE SAMARITAN OF YEAR AWARD PAYS TRIBUTE TO
 CUSTOMERS WHOSE CALLS SAVE LIVES, HELP CATCH CRIMINALS
 WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellular One of Florida announces the establishment of The Samaritan of the Year Award, a statewide recognition program designed to increase public awareness of cellular's positive role in reporting emergency situations.
 The program, developed in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies in most major markets across the state, is already underway in Dade and Broward counties, said Daniel Olmetti, vice president of external affairs for Cellular One. The program will also be introduced in the Tampa/St. Petersburg and Orlando markets this fall.
 "There are thousands of instances where cellular customers have reported accidents and other incidents where personal safety is involved," said Olmetti. "In some cases, the timeliness of the call actually saved lives. Callers have also been instrumental in preventing a serious crime or assisting in the apprehension of a person committing a felony or DUI. The awards program pays tribute to those people who get involved."
