FCC Encourages Participation In Disaster Information Reporting System
August 9, 2010 at 5:22 AM (PT)
The Media Bureau and Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau of the FCC is asking stations not yet voluntarily enrolled in the Commission’s Disaster Information Reporting System to do so, and is encouraging stations already enrolled to update contact information on a routine basis.
Nearly 800 broadcasters are enrolled thus far in the DIRS program. Participation is being encouraged in light of the beginning of hurricane season.
