Background On October 14, 1993, FEMA published a regulation that made the force account labor straight-time salary for work under Sections 403 and 407 PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ineligible under the Public Assistance Program. The 1993 regulation did not include emergency work accomplished under Section 502 (Federal Emergency Assistance) of The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq. The ineligibility of straight-time salaries for emergency work under Section 502 is included as a provision of the FEMA– State Agreement. Labor (straight-time, overtime, and fringe benefits to the extent the benefits were being paid before the disaster) performed under Section 406 (permanent work) of the Stafford Act remains eligible for reimbursement. In the draft updated policy, FEMA proposes that labor costs for firefighters and other responders when activated and deployed to perform eligible emergency work be eligible for reimbursement. FEMA also proposes to provide assistance for overtime for firefighters for up to 24 hours per day for the first two weeks after a disaster. FEMA seeks comment on the proposed policy, which is available online at http://www.regulations.gov in docket ID FEMA–2010–0050. Based on the comments received, FEMA may make appropriate revisions to the proposed policy. Although FEMA will consider any comments received in the drafting of the final policy, FEMA will not provide a response to comments document.
