Here’s where our Network stands:

Verizon’s network remains unaffected by the Tick, Kincade, and Getty wildfires.

With regards to the newest public safety power shutoff, we are doing everything we can to minimize its impact. However, there may be discrete areas of our network that experience service disruption or degradation, due to topographical and other technological constraints that prevent the deployment of backup power or other resources to a particular cell site.
