Other Airspace Areas


The FSS nearest the incident site is normally the

“coordination facility.” When FAA communications

assistance is required, the designated FSS will

function as the primary communications facility for

coordination between emergency control authorities

and affected aircraft. The ARTCC may act as liaison

for the emergency control authorities if adequate

communications cannot be established between the

designated FSS and the relief organization. For

example, the coordination facility may relay

authorizations from the on-scene emergency re-

sponse official in cases where news media aircraft

operations are approved at the altitudes used by relief



ATC may authorize operations in a temporary

flight restrictions area under its own authority only

when flight restrictions are established under 14 CFR

Section 91.137(a)(2) and (a)(3). The appropriate

ARTCC/airport traffic control tower manager will,

however, ensure that such authorized flights do not

hamper activities or interfere with the event for which

restrictions were implemented. However, ATC will

not authorize local IFR flights into the temporary

flight restrictions area.


To preclude misunderstanding, the implement-

ing NOTAM will contain specific and formatted

information. The facility establishing a temporary

flight restrictions area will format a NOTAM

beginning with the phrase “FLIGHT RESTRIC-

TIONS” followed by: the location of the temporary

flight restrictions area; the effective period; the area

defined in statute miles; the altitudes affected; the

FAA coordination facility and commercial telephone

number; the reason for the temporary flight

restrictions; the agency directing any relief activities

and its commercial telephone number; and other

information considered appropriate by the issuing
