The crash of the air carrier flight in north.Y. Apparently prompted the NTSB to suggest refresher training be provided to all controllers in the areas of minimum fuel and emergencys. The FAA apparently issued genot rwa 0/11 in response to this. On 4/mon/90 I received a verbal briefing at work on these subjects. During the briefing, I picked up the letter which was the basis of the briefing and noticed that it had been date stamped as having been received in our facility on 2/wed/90. The entire month of march had passed prior to the briefing being accomplished. Our facility has only about 21 controllers and there is no reason that a briefing on this subject could not have been accomplished faster, especially since the subject was considered important enough for NTSB to have issued recommendations to the FAA and for the FAA to have issued a genot.

Title: CTLR REPORTER COMPLAINS ON THE TIME DELAY TO RECEIVE BRIEFING ON MANDATORY MINIMUM FUEL AND EMERGENCIES HANDLING.
Narrative: THE CRASH OF THE ACR FLT IN N.Y. APPARENTLY PROMPTED THE NTSB TO SUGGEST REFRESHER TRNING BE PROVIDED TO ALL CTLRS IN THE AREAS OF MINIMUM FUEL AND EMERS. THE FAA APPARENTLY ISSUED GENOT RWA 0/11 IN RESPONSE TO THIS. ON 4/MON/90 I RECEIVED A VERBAL BRIEFING AT WORK ON THESE SUBJECTS. DURING THE BRIEFING, I PICKED UP THE LETTER WHICH WAS THE BASIS OF THE BRIEFING AND NOTICED THAT IT HAD BEEN DATE STAMPED AS HAVING BEEN RECEIVED IN OUR FAC ON 2/WED/90. THE ENTIRE MONTH OF MARCH HAD PASSED PRIOR TO THE BRIEFING BEING ACCOMPLISHED. OUR FAC HAS ONLY ABOUT 21 CTLRS AND THERE IS NO REASON THAT A BRIEFING ON THIS SUBJECT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN ACCOMPLISHED FASTER, ESPECIALLY SINCE THE SUBJECT WAS CONSIDERED IMPORTANT ENOUGH FOR NTSB TO HAVE ISSUED RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE FAA AND FOR THE FAA TO HAVE ISSUED A GENOT.
