Arkansas; Amendment No. 3 to Notice of a Major Disaster Declaration, 21360-21361 [E8-8558]

Download as PDF 21360 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 77 / Monday, April 21, 2008 / Notices includes the actual data collection instruments FEMA will use. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Current national conditions of increased risk for man-made and/or accidental chemical disasters create great demand for the constant monitoring of preparednessrelated activities. Since the Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) is a cooperative effort among local, State, and Federal governments working closely with the public in communities surrounding fixed hazards, documenting performance at each of these levels is vital for program planning and management in each of the CSEPP sites. Furthermore, since no preparedness program can be successful without the public’s understanding and cooperation, input from the residents and businesses of immediate and/or surrounding areas is vital for program managers to design custom-tailored strategies to educate and communicate risks and action plans at the local level. Failure to collect this information will hamper the program’s ability to document strengths and weaknesses at each site, forcing managers to rely on intuitive rather than on factual decision-making, with no objective basis to quantify program performance, a requirement of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). Title: Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) Evaluation and Customer Satisfaction Survey. Type of Information Collection: Revision of a currently approved collection. OMB Number: OMB 1660–0057. Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/FEMA’s CSEPP will collect data from State and local governments to measure program effectiveness and establish a quantitative baseline of customer satisfaction with program products and services. Data findings will be used to set customer service standards while providing benchmarks for program monitoring and evaluation. This information collection also constitutes an assessment tool that measures public knowledge of emergency preparedness and response actions in the event of a chemical emergency affecting any of the seven CSEPP sites and surrounding communities. Data from this collection will continue to provide a basis for program planning and management through the development and/or modification of performance standards, the ability to monitor program changes and trends over time, and the capability to objectively evaluate outreach performance against best practices (benchmarks) in multi-hazard readiness programs. Affected Public: State, Local or Tribal governments. Number of Respondents: 2,224. Estimated Time per Respondent: 0.25 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 556 hours.
