SOLA Communications Resuscitates Organ Donation Operation

(Kenner, LA) -SOLA Communications (SOLA), a Louisiana-based company recognized for delivering communications with its "broadband anywhere" solutions, provided phone and data connectivity to a premiere New Orleans organ donation and transportation company on Sunday. First Call Pharmacy, strategically located in Kenner, Louisiana near the New Orleans International Airport, engages in organ donation and transportation.

The extraordinary event caused by Katrina rendered traditional phone systems inoperable due to lack of power and overloaded phone networks. "Constant coordination and communication is absolutely critical in this industry," said Gordon Rice, President of SOLA. SOLA set up a broadband satellite solution for First Call Pharmacy by integrating their current communication systems over SOLA's broadband connection, which solved their immediate communications needs.

"You guys are real heroes here," Dean Elazab, President of First Call Pharmacy. "Thanks for making this happen so quickly and saving us and our patients in this time of crisis,"

SOLA is also providing its self-sustaining Emergency Response Units, complete portable command centers, deployed in this area to aid in providing communication where it would otherwise be impossible without satellite in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Operations extend are deployed in Hurricane Katrina stricken areas and in relief centers. These units are being used to provide live remote video data streams, communication as well as safety equipment such as gas detection equipment used in detecting gas leaks. Additionally SOLA is providing personal protection equipment (PPE) such as facemasks, gloves and chemical suits in areas that are considered bio-hazardous and potentially dangerous environments.
