The FCC activated its Disaster Information Reporting System (DIRS) in response to Hurricane Zeta. DIRS is a voluntary, web-based system that communications providers, including wireless, wireline, broadcast, cable and Voice over Internet Protocol providers, and satellite providers can use to report communications infrastructure status during a crisis. The FCC is asking providers to submit reports each day by 10 a.m. beginning today.
