The following statement should be attributed to Anthony Melone, Verizon executive vice president and chief technology officer:
"Verizon takes seriously its role in the 911 ecosystem. We have acted diligently and decisively to resolve the operational and communications issues that arose after the June 2012 derecho, and our performance during Hurricane Sandy in late October demonstrated the substantial progress we've made.
