Viya Gives Emergency Preparedness Reminders

As hurricane season approaches, Viya advises its employees and customers that in the event of a severe storm, hurricane, natural or man-made disaster, it is important that they tune to local radio and television stations to stay abreast of weather conditions and updates from the Company.

Chief Executive Officer Geraldine Pitt said, “Our website ( and Facebook page ( ViyaUSVI) will have regular updates in the event of a disaster.”

“We are asking all of our customers to include the maintenance of their critical communication equipment on the list of things that they should consider as they prepare for the upcoming Hurricane Season. Just as we all keep spare batteries for our flashlights and radios, we must ensure that our modems and wireless phones are adequately charged,” said Pitt.

Viya also reminds customers that, in the event of a disaster, they should refrain from moving or cutting downed lines on their property or in the vicinity of their homes because they may be active power lines, telephone lines or cable TV lines. To report downed lines or any other Viya service-related issues, customers can contact Viya’s representatives by calling 777-Viya (8492).
