ATIS Releases Updated Emergency Preparedness, Response Checklist
Thursday, January 20, 2022 | Comments

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) published an updated version of its “NRSC Emergency Preparedness and Response Checklist,” which comprises voluntary industry best practices as a reference in preparation for, response to and recovery from a disaster event. This resource updates the previous version, which was revised in 2019.

The updated checklist incorporates additional best practices derived from industry response to increasingly common wildfires, tornadoes hurricanes and other disasters. Additionally, it supports the industry in its efforts to minimize the impact of a disaster and ensure network stability by presenting recommended actions to be taken to prepare, respond to and recover from a disaster.

In addition to telecommunications industry input, the checklist also reflects insights gained from ATIS Network Reliability Steering Committee (NRSC) member participation in cross-industry forums. These forums currently address issues in areas including power, water and finance. Based on recent discussions, NRSC suggested the addition of a new industry role for “power” for use in Best Practices. This new industry role is reflected in the checklist.
