The government is going to oblige the media and telecom operators to notify about emergencies
The Government of the Russian Federation has submitted a bill to the State Duma, obliging the media and telecom operators to notify the public about emergency situations. Information about emergencies will be provided by specialized agencies. About it сообщается on the official portal of the Government of Russia.
“At the same time, the order of interaction of all entities involved in providing notification or transfer of emergency information - federal and regional executive authorities, local authorities, telecom operators and media editorial offices - is not fixed by law” - the report says. The draft law intends to oblige telecom operators and the media to notify residents of regions of emergencies at no cost. However, the government emphasizes that the companies to which the new rule will apply will not incur additional costs.
The document notes that, depending on the distribution area of the media or the telecom operator, local agencies will be able to appeal to it with the requirement to broadcast information for television channels and radio stations, or to print the corresponding appeal for electronic and print media.
