U.S. Cellular: Seeking Local Wireless Heroes for National Recognition

Loren Snyder, 414-291-7620

Every day, wireless phones are used to help people in emergency situations. Some of the most heroic rescues are made with the help of a wireless phone. The wireless industry celebrates the most heroic wireless stories with its annual “VITA TM Wireless Samaritan Award,” a national award sponsored by the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association.

Winners receive an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., to receive the award in May, 2005.

U.S. Cellular encourages its customers to nominate a friend, family member or colleague for this award. Details on how to submit a nomination are included in the attached release.

We hope you consider publishing the announcement of this award, which will help promote awareness of how wireless phones can serve as safety tools.
