FCC to Hold 911 Outages Workshop

The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau announced that it plans to hold a Sept. 11 workshop that will focus on “best practices for improving situational awareness during 911 outages. Topics addressed in the workshop will include how to strengthen Public Safety Answering Point 911 service outage notifications and how to best communicate with consumers about alternative methods of accessing emergency services.” The event will be held in the Commission’s meeting room at its Washington headquarters.  The bureau plans to release additional details on the event later, including the time it will be held.
