And he's especially lucky that the LTE tower has power, if his local substation is without power.

This past summer, during the major east coast windstorm that went through, we lost power at our house AND at our cell phone tower. So there was absolutely no connectivity or way to make emergency calls. It turns out even the 911 stations lost power, so it didn't matter if we could place calls or not.

Yeah, people were not happy around here about the local 911 stations going down.
