The Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) is one facet of the multi-hazard readiness program in two States that deal with hazardous material spills or releases. The program’s goal is to improve preparedness to protect the people of these communities in the unlikely event of an accident. CSEPP, a cooperative effort between FEMA and the U.S. Army, provides funding (grants), training, community outreach, guidance, technical support and expertise to State, local, and Tribal governments to improve their capabilities to prepare for and respond to this type of disaster. 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’ ability to design customtailored strategies to educate and communicate risks and action plans at the local level. This survey, which was initiated six years ago, will continue as the assessment mechanism to document and quantify program achievements. The authorities supporting this information collection include: (1) 42 U.S.C. 5131; (2) 50 U.S.C 1521; (3) the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993, Public Law 103–62, 107 Stat. 285; (4) the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010, Public Law 111–352; 124 Stat. 3866; (5) Executive Order 12862, and its March 23, 1995 Memorandum addendum, ‘‘Improving Customer Service’’; and (6) Executive Order 13571, and its June 13, 2011 Memorandum ‘‘Implementing Executive Order 13571 on Streamlining Service Delivery and Improving Customer Service.’’ SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Collection of Information Title: Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) Evaluation and Customer Satisfaction Survey.
