Yesterday, Fletcher Heald attorneys Frank Montero and Davina Sashkin with Pat Roberts of  the Florida Association of Broadcasters (“FAB”), and their special guests Lisa Fowlkes and Christina Clearwater of the FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, and Craig Fugate, former FEMA Administrator and founder of Fugate Consulting, presented a webinar in consultation with the FAB entitled “Broadcasting During Times of Emergency”. They addressed topics ranging from FCC EAS requirements,  IPAWS, hurricanes, COVID-19, and DHS and FCC assistance for broadcasters.

If you didn’t catch the webinar live you may watch the full video recording of the webinar on YouTube.

Now, more than ever, broadcasters must be aware of their vital role in mitigating disaster and the resources that Federal and state governments have to offer.
