Cingular Wireless assembled more than 700 generators to prepare for landfall of Hurricane Wilma. These generators are used to maintain wireless signals during power outages. There also were almost 600,000 gallons of extra fuel on standby if needed. Cingular Wireless collected equipment from all over the Southeast at staging areas like this one near the Lakeland Airport in Lakeland, Fla., on Friday.
