Subscribers to OnStar on the east coast should be sure to use the Crisis Assist services if there is an emergency during the duration of Hurricane Sandy.
Online PR News – 02-November-2012 – Flint, MI – Hurricane Sandy is fast approaching the east coast this week. Possibly affected states include North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. In those states alone, there are almost one million subscribers to Chevrolet’s OnStar.
It is very important that these subscribers know that they are encouraged to make use of OnStar’s Crisis Assist services in the event of any and all emergencies relating to Hurricane Sandy. Mary Ann Adams, OnStar crisis incident manager, said, “This is a very aggressive storm that could potentially affect the majority of the East Coast. Residents are advised to listen to their local emergency management officials for instructions in their area. For those who have access, OnStar is also on call to help.”
What can OnStar help with? For starters, OnStar is available to contact when subscribers need things such as weather and traffic updates, help reporting power outages, and information on hotel accommodations. OnStar also provides routing assistance for drivers in need of alternate routes when evacuating or trying to make it safely home, to a hospital, or to another place of shelter. On top of that, OnStar offers direct connection to emergency responders who can pinpoint your exact location in the event of an accident or emergency.
In addition, OnStar can keep connected those subscribers who are without power and thus unable to get online or charge their cell phones. OnStar is a great way to listen for reports of accidents or dangerous situations and is also a place to report these dangerous situations so other drivers can avoid encountering them.
Patsy Lou Chevrolet strongly suggests that anyone with Chevrolet’s OnStar learn about all its safety features and make sure they know how to use them. It could make a world of difference as Hurricane Sandy approaches.
