Draft proposed natural disaster arrangements get tick of approval from Communications Alliance Featured

By

Telecoms lobby group and peak industry body Communications Alliance has welcomed the release of a set of draft propositions by the counsel assisting the Royal Commission into Natural Disaster Arrangements, and its focus on information flows between Governments and essential infrastructure owners and operators, to enhance coordinated engagement and response during national disasters.

Welcoming the draft proposition, Communications Alliance CEO John Stanton said “we applaud the determined and timely way in which the Royal Commission is going about its work.”

“We will examine the details of the draft propositions and formally respond to those of particular relevance to the communications sector, drawing on the views and recent bushfire-season experiences of our industry members.”

As reported by iTWire in May, telecommunications resilience in bushfire and disaster prone areas to ensure communities can stay connected during emergencies was strengthened by a $37.1 million investment from the Australian Government, including funding to improve the resilience of regional and remote mobile phone base stations to keep them operating for longer during bushfires.

The funding included $2.1 million to be put towards a pilot program over the next two bushfire seasons to improve the information provided about access to telecommunications in emergencies.

And at the beginning of May, in a report prepared by the ACMA with the assistance of Communications Alliance and the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association (AMTA), it was reported that mobile network outages during the 2019-20 bushfires were overwhelmingly due to loss of power rather than fire damage.
