The purposes for an applicant’s request to acquire personal protective gear have been revised. These new purposes for FY 2017 are ranked by priority as follows: • Replace damaged broken inoperable equipment to current standard (high), • Replace obsolete/non-compliant to upgrade technology (medium), • Increase supply for new hires and/ or existing firefighters that do not have one set of turnout gear (PPE) or allocated seated positions (high). Call volume is a consideration, but only between like departments, i.e. career, combination, and/or volunteer. Additional consideration for call volume can contribute to the justification of a new risk and/or the primary first due response area or region. Age of equipment terminology changed from ‘‘medium’’ to ‘‘intermediate.’’ This was done to avoid confusion within similar name in other parts of the NOFO, i.e. (Medium) priority. Vehicle mounted exhaust systems are now listed under the equipment activity. Fire departments and SFTA will have separate lists of allowable equipment that each type of entity may apply for and acquire with AFG funds. The following items are now considered a ‘‘medium’’ priority for fire department applicants: Props, simulators, mobile data terminals (MDT), and computers used in training and mobile computing devices used on scene. EMS training aids with an age category of ‘‘short’’ (5–7 year life expectancy) are now eligible expense for FY 2017 (i.e., CPR mannequins, airway training equipment, IVs, etc.). Monitoring and sampling devices are now categorized as ‘‘Sampling Devices.’’ This was done to avoid confusion within similar specialized monitoring devices, for use in ‘‘medium’’ and ‘‘low’’ priorities. Tow vehicles are now listed under a separate chart in the equipment section to clarify the priority levels between application types, i.e. fire department and SFTA. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:23 Feb 09, 2018 Jkt 244001 • Nozzles, appliances, foam inductors are all high priorities and listed in one category.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is authorized by the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administers the NFIP and maintains the maps that depict flood hazard information. The land area covered by the floodwaters of the base flood is the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) on NFIP maps. The SFHA is the area where the NFIP’s floodplain management regulations must be enforced and the area where the mandatory purchase of flood insurance applies. If a SFHA has been determined to exist for property and the owner or lessee of the property believes his/her property has been incorrectly included in a SFHA, information can be provided to support removal of the SFHA designation. NFIP regulations, at 44 CFR parts 65 and 70, outline the data that must be submitted by an owner or lessee of property who believes his/her property has been incorrectly included in a SFHA. In order to remove an area from a SFHA, the owner or lessee of the property must submit scientific or technical data demonstrating that the area is ‘‘reasonably safe from flooding’’ and not in the SFHA.

If the property is determined not to be within a SFHA, FEMA provides a written determination and the appropriate map is modified by a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) or a Letter of Map Revision—Based on Fill (LOMR–F). The owner or lessee of a property uses a LOMA or LOMR–F to show that a property is not located within the SFHA, making it possible for the lending institution to waive the flood insurance requirement.
