Looking Out For Those in Sandy's Path



audio package, .mp3
ANCHOR LEAD: It’s been seven years since the U.S. was hit with a powerful hurricane, and as parts of the country prep for Sandy’s strong winds, rain and cold temps, Brian Osuch says there are different ways to keep your family safe and connected. (:60) SCRIPT: Newsbreak, I’m Brian Osuch. As the Northeast prepares for severe weather, OnStars’ Crisis Incident Manager, Mary Ann Adams says GM has learned a lot since Hurricane Katrina and is prepared to help subscribers through these types of dangerous storms. CUT: (Adams) A lot of people just leave the area that’s going to be impacted, so they want routes to a hotel that they can stay at, and so we actually help them look for hotel rooms or if they need a shelter of last resort we’ll help them with that. SCRIPT: Adams says there is a common thread between all calls – people who need help, need to talk and it has to be easy. CUT: (Adams) Call us with an urgent situation and at least we can call first responders and tell them where that person is located. SCRIPT: Adams also says OnStar can help keep the lines of communication open. CUT: (Adams) If there is a power outage and you can’t use your landline phone, or you need to report a situation and your cell phone is not working, go to your vehicle and press the blue or the red button and we’ll make that connection for you. SCRIPT: For more, log onto OnStar-dot-com. That’s Newsbreak from GM.
