The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau activated the agency’s Disaster Information Reporting System (DIRS) in response to Hurricane Florence. Communications providers use the system to report communications infrastructure status during a crisis.
The bureau is asking providers who service the affected areas to report the status of their communications equipment, restoration efforts, and whether they are using commercial power or back-up power to https://www.fcc.gov/nors/disaster/. The FCC asks for reports by 10 a.m. each day beginning today.
