MCI PROVIDES EMERGENCY TELECOMMUNICATIONS MESSAGING SERVICES FOR WTC COMPANIES

 NEW YORK, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the emergency at the World Trade Center last Friday, MCI has set up a Public Booth operation on a temporary basis at its sales offices on the 20th floor of 222 Broadway. WTC companies that have a need to send or receive facsimile messages, retrieve or send electronic mail and send or receive telex messages, may use the facilities, regardless of whether they are currently MCI customers.
 MCI, upon the request of their customers, has re-routed a number of telex calls so that they are delivered on alternate telex terminals outside of the affected downtown Manhattan area. MCI also provided some of its customers with spare equipment.
 "The financial area represents one of our largest customer bases," said Jerry DeMartino, vice president of sales and marketing for MCI International. "We recognized on Friday some of the problems our customers would be facing and have geared up all of our resources to help them. In this emergency, we are also making our facilities available to non-MCI customers that need these services. WTC companies may call an MCI representative in Manhattan at 212-720-0518.
 In addition, MCI has a number of features built into its messaging services, such as AutoForward, that allow customers to re-terminate telex or electronic mail messages to hardcopy, facsimile terminals or alternate MCI Mail electronic mailboxes, at their discretion. For more information on these services, customers may call 1-800-444-6245.
