The Verizon network is a complex collection of assets, from buildings to transmission facilities to vehicles and people, and Verizonís regional control center is always preparing for adverse weather of the season. 
 
The telecommunications network, like your home, requires power to function properly.  If commercial power goes out, backup batteries and generators in Verizonís central switching offices or field facilities keep power flowing so customersí phones ring even when the lights go out.
