FCC Operations Center Open for Business

FCC provides contacts for communications questions during storm

The FCC reminds broadcasters, cable operators, wired or
wireless service providers who need to contact the FCC about any
Hurricane/Tropical Storm Sandy-related emergency communications issues that the
FCC operations center is available Sunday, Oct. 28.

The phone number is 202-418-1122 or email at
FCCOPCenter@fcc.gov.

The FCC has also released a tip
sheet
on communicating during national disasters "to assist people to
be aware of their communications options - through nine easy measures -- so
they can effectively seek to maintain communications during an emergency
situation."

No. 9 on that list: "Tune-in to broadcast and radio
news for important news alerts."
