On November 6, 2018, the FCC published a News Release announcing that Chairman Pai has launched a re-examination of the Wireless Resiliency Cooperative Framework, a voluntary wireless industry commitment to promote resilient wireless communications and situational awareness during disasters.

The framework is a five-pronged approach to enhancing coordination during emergencies, which includes roaming, mutual aid among providers, enhancing local preparedness and restoration, consumer readiness and protection, and public awareness efforts. FCC Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau Chief Lisa M. Fowlkes sent letters to participating carriers asking them to supply information on how they have implemented the framework in disaster situations over the past two years. Letters were sent to the following carriers: AT&T, Sprint Nextel, US Cellular, Verizon, GCI, Southern Linc, and T-Mobile.
