"first responders who rely on us" from YouTube.

A new Verizon's ad that touts the company's help for firefighters
hasn't played well.

On Monday, the carrier giant released a video on YouTube about helping
first responders. It then quickly removed the video from the social
network after it became the target of criticism on Reddit, where users
pointed out that Verizon had throttled firefighters' mobile data
during the Mendocino Complex fire in California a few months earlier.
