OMB Control Number: None. Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Emergency submission (new information collection). Burden Hours: 200. Number of Respondents: 400. Average Hours per Response: 30 minutes. Needs and Uses: Under the National Construction Safety Team Act, the NIST Director established a team to perform a technical investigative study of the Joplin, MO tornado event of May 22, 2011. One of the study’s five objectives focuses on determining the pattern, location, and cause of fatalities and injuries, and associated emergency communications and public response. To achieve this objective, the team will interview individuals who have knowledge and/or experiences related to the tornado. The team is interested in understanding the ways in which people received information about the tornado (if at all), the personal protective actions they took in response to the tornado (if any), any information that they have about injuries and fatalities resulting from the tornado, and any pre-5/22/11 experiences with and/ or planning for tornados inside and outside of the Joplin, MO area. Potential interviewees are those who experienced some aspect of the tornado. Most of these individuals will include survivors of the tornado, located within the damage path of the tornado and survived. Other interviewees can include those who were originally located within the damage path prior to tornado touch-down; have knowledge about injuries and fatalities from the disaster; or willing to discuss pre-5/22/ 11 experiences with tornados in the Joplin, MO area. The team will interview people as they volunteer to participate in interviews and will cease when key areas of interest are saturated. The team will attempt, as much as possible, to collect information from interviewees varying by age group, geographical location within the damage path and Joplin, MO, and overall experience with the disaster, among other factors.
