The FCC provided information for public-safety licensees and applicants filing special temporary authority (STA) requests or waiver requests in response to the declaration of national emergency because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For emergency requests for STA that the FCC grants and that are not filed in the first instance in the Universal Licensing System (ULS) — requests by informal letter, email or telephone — the grant may include a requirement that the applicant file a subsequent request in ULS within 10 days or file a request for waiver in ULS.

For further information, Part 90 and Part 101 public-safety licensees and applicants may contact Tracy Simmons at (717)-338-2657 or Tracy.Simmons@fcc.gov. During evening hours, weekends and holidays, public-safety licensees needing FCC emergency assistance or STAs can call the FCC’s Operation Center 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (202)-418-1122 or by email at FCCOperationCenter@fcc.gov.
