In this paper, we propose a framework to leverage electrical microgrids and cellular networks to support post- disaster communications for the public, government and critical infrastructure operation. The framework involves both policy and technical components. The proposed approach is an integration of electrical microgrids to provide power together with self con- figuring wireless mesh communication networks and local edge computing infrastructure to support critical communications and smart infrastructure services/applications in a specific geographic area. Hence, geographic zones which are resilient safe havens are created in a city. We outline the basic components of our approach and discuss open challenges to realizing the vision
