Globe Telecom transmitted a total of 11 text messages, warning customers of potential dangers coming from Typhoon Nina prior to its landfall.

According to Globe Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications Yoly Crisanto, transmittal of the text messages was undertaken in coordination with the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) at no cost to consumers. “As a provider of vital telecommunications services, Globe recognizes the importance of disseminating information that would help ensure the safety and security of our customers specially during times of emergencies and calamities. The company is deeply committed in providing support for the government in undertaking such initiatives,” Crisanto said.
