FCC Urges Preparation For Hurricane Season
May 27, 2010 at 4:32 AM (PT)
The FCC is reminding communications providers that hurricane season is coming and that the Commission has established emergency contact and reporting procedures.
In case of emergency, stations can contact the Commission for STAs and consultation around the clock at (202) 418-1122 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Commission is also urging participation in its Disaster Information Reporting System (DIRS), its web-based system to allow broadcast, cable, wireless and wireline providers to report communications infrastructure status and situational awareness information to the Commission.
