The Federal Communications Commission translated its first Emergency Alert System handbook into Spanish, starting with the one for TV broadcasters.
It is now available on the FCC's Web site, according to a spokesman for the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, and it will also be available in print form upon request.
The Minority Media & Telecommunications Council complained that the handbooks were only in English, saying that not changing that could endanger Spanish-speaking people and potentially non-Spanish speakers, as well.
The FCC responded that the translations were in the works.
