GMC Hurricane Support Offers Complimentary OnStar Crisis Assist

GMC Hurricane Support - Ewing Buick GMC BlogAnyone who has been impacted by Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma knows how difficult it can be to find the resources needed to overcome the disaster. GMC hopes to make the steps toward safety and recovery easier by providing support for the hurricane victims. That GMC hurricane support is provided in the form of free access to OnStar Crisis Assist, which can help with a number of different things.

Any person with an OnStar-equipped vehicle, or with access to an OnStar-equipped vehicle, can use the OnStar Crisis Assist. This tool immediately connects the user with a trained team of advisors who are there to help in an urgent time of need. OnStar Crisis Assists can help by connecting users with emergency first responders, by helping users find shelter or hotels, by guiding users in evacuation when needed, or by connecting users with friends and family.

OnStar Crisis Assist has already helped over 75,000 people since Hurricane Harvey landed in August of this year. GMC is happy to make such a useful tool available to those in need, and we’re happy to offer vehicles equipped with such a potentially life-saving tool.
