  • 5A Working Group recommendations include

    • Specific recommendations on rule changes

    • General comment and analysis regarding Part 11 regulatory structure

    • Actions the FCC can take to improve EAS access for people with disabilities and non-English speaking communities


Methodology

Methodology

  • 5A comprised of over 22 members

  • Working Group split into two sub-groups to promote more detailed and focused discussions

    • Technical Sub-Group

    • Policy/Disabilities Sub-Group

  • Regularly scheduled conference calls took place over 6 months

  • Online collaborative Portal used by members to exchange ideas, promote discussion, and share resources/documents in virtual environment


Findings

Findings

  • 5A Working Group developed a total of 33 technical recommendations, including proposed language to be included in rulemaking

  • Procedural

    • Consider adoption of EAS-CAP Industry Group (ECIG) Implementation Guidelines

    • Clarification of how “Governor Must Carry” messages will be implemented

    • EAS participants should be required to monitor multiple IP-based CAP alert sources

    • EAS Equipment Requirement tables need to be revised to reflect the range of new CAP EAS equipment that will be required

    • Add Ethernet input and multiple IP source requirements


Common alerting protocol cap

Common Alerting Protocol (CAP)

  • 5A Final Report recommends FCC revise its rules governing the EAS to accommodate CAP

  • Includes extending the timeline by which all EAS participants are expected to adopt CAP from 180 to 300 days


State and local governments

State and Local Governments

  • 5A Final Report recommends FCC ensure state and local governments update their EAS plans to accommodate CAP in a timely fashion


National relay center

National Relay Center

  • 5A Final Report recommends FCC consider initiating a procedure or hosting a workshop to explore feasibility of developing a National Relay Center

  • National Relay Center would be source of information for deaf and hard of hearing, the blind and visually impaired, caregivers in group homes, people with physical disabilities, as well as others


Multilingual communities

Multilingual Communities

  • As language translation technology improves, 5A Final Report recommends FCC research methodologies employed by bilingual and multilingual countries such as Canada, Israel, Belgium, etc.


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • Findings indicate many portions of Part 11 Rules will need to be reviewed/revised with FEMA’s imminent adoption of CAP

  • Planned changes to EAS provides unique opportunity to improve emergency messaging capabilities and address needs of diverse stakeholder groups

  • Dedication exhibited by 5A Working Group members demonstrates the importance of this issue to the community
