FRA assigned the petition docket number FRA–2015– 0044. Siemens Industry, Inc. (Siemens) is submitting a request for a waiver of compliance from 49 CFR 232.409(d)— Inspection and Testing of End-of-Train Devices. Siemens manufactures railroad electronics, including end-of-train (EOT) devices. In its waiver request, Siemens states that thousands of its EOT devices are deployed by Class 1 and short line railroads. Specifically, Siemens is seeking the waiver for two EOT models: Q3920 and R3930 (the dual air pipe version of Q3920). The Q3920 and R3930 EOT devices use a Ritron DTX–445 radio. Previously, Ritron has received a waiver of compliance from 49 CFR 232.409(d) for their DTX–445 radio (see Docket Number FRA–2009–0015). Siemens requests a waiver from 49 CFR 232.409(d), similar to the waiver granted to Ritron in Docket Number FRA–2009– 0015. Siemens asserts that as long as the waiver in FRA–2009–0015 is valid, Siemens EOT devices using the Ritron DTX–445 radio should also be permitted to take advantage of the waiver since there are no components in the EOT device with an annual calibration requirement and there are no adjustable components that can affect radio performance. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the Department of Transportation’s Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.

This effort developed the firstever standardized EMS patient care reporting mechanism, which would provide essential information that could lead to improved patient care at local, State and national levels. Both the Senate and House included NEMSIS language in FY05 NHTSA Appropriations, directing NHTSA to continue implementation of NEMSIS and the National EMS Database.

The National EMS Database is populated by collecting data from State EMS databases. State EMS databases are populated with patient care records from local or regional EMS agencies. The most complete report is the local EMS electronic patient care report completed for each EMS response. A subset of each the local EMS report is submitted electronically to the State EMS database and the State EMS office electronically transmits a smaller subset of all the local data to the NEMSIS TAC for inclusion in the National EMS Database. The data at the national level contains no personally identifiable information, and is reported in the aggregate. Affected Public: State and territory EMS offices, and, in some cases, EMS software vendors. Estimated Number of Respondents: 56. Frequency: Through Web services, within a few hours of when the State receives the local record. Number of Responses: Depends on each State and how many patient calls are responded to. All transmissions are machine to machine. Total Annual Burden: Estimate total annual burden to be approximately 12 hours per respondent and cumulative total of 672 hours. Form Numbers: No forms.
