2018 Rescheduled DIRS Exercise Cancelled

Posted on September 27th, 2018 by

Due to Hurricane Florence, the FCC decided to cancel its Disaster Information Reporting System (DIRS) exercise that had previously been rescheduled to September 13-14, 2018 due to Hurricane Lane. No plan has been announced for a new DIRS test. During emergencies, DIRS helps stations restore and maintain operations, with the government providing fast assistance with pre-positioned fuel, generators, transmitters and other equipment.
