The Federal Communications Commission announced procedures to help radio and television stations maintain or resume broadcast operations if their facilities are threatened or compromised by the California wildfires.

The list of names and contact information [PDF] covers such items as requests for Special Temporary Authority or permission to erect emergency antennas and even requests for AM daytimers to stay on the air at night for safety reasons.

Stations must also tell the commission when they have stopped broadcasting due to fire damage.
