9/07/2009 9:09 AM Eastern

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has scheduled a Tuesday press conference to announce what his office calls an "action plan" to bolster the commission's ability to deal with an emergency.

The FCC will release a report on the FCC's current state of readiness, the result of the chairman's directive for a top-to-bottom review. The review was one of the new chairman's first action orders, less than a day after being sworn in.

The press conference will be a joint affair with officials from the Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, and Health and Human Services.
