FCC Seeks Feedback on Disaster Information Reporting Training
Thursday, August 04, 2022 | Comments

The FCC released a draft on exemplary training materials for Network Outage Reporting System (NORS) and Disaster Information Reporting System (DIRS) filings and requested feedback on it.

On March 17, the FCC adopted a second report and order that established a framework for sharing NORS and DIRS filings with participating state, federal and tribal nation agencies to improve public-safety outcomes while safeguarding the confidentiality of this data.

In the second report and order, the Commission adopted a requirement that each participating agency develop a training program or rely on an outside training program to train its staff on the proper uses of NORS and DIRS filings. The commission further delegated authority to the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (Bureau) to consult with diverse stakeholders, including state governments, the public-safety community, service providers, and other industry representatives, to identify an exemplar training program or develop exemplar training materials that agencies could use for this purpose.

Comments on the draft are due August 24 and reply comments are due September 6.
