FCC Seeks Comment on Improving Coordination during Emergencies

February 1, 2019
Source: Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

On January 3, 2019, the FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) released a public notice seeking information to help identify actions the PSHSB, communications providers, and power companies can cooperatively take to encourage and increase coordination regarding an emergency or disaster.

Consumers with disabilities are encouraged to share their experiences regarding how their access to communications systems (including wireline, wireless, satellite, broadcast, and cable networks) was impacted by the loss of power leading up to, during, and following disasters.
