SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public Law 93–498 provides for the gathering and analyzing of data as deemed useful and applicable for fire departments. The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) receives many requests from fire service organizations and the general public for information related to fire departments, including total number of departments, number of stations per department, population protected, and number of firefighters. The USFA also has a need for this information to guide programmatic decisions, and produce mailing lists for USFA publications. Recommendations for the creation of the fire department census database came out of a Blue Ribbon Panel’s review of the USFA. The report included a review of the structure, mission, and funding of the USFA, future policies, programmatic needs, course development and delivery, and the role of the USFA to reflect changes in the fire service. As a result of those recommendations, the USFA is working to identify all fire departments in the United States to develop a database that will include information related to demographics, capabilities, and activities of fire departments Nationwide. In the fall of 2016, the USFA renamed the census to the National Fire Department Registry. In the fall of 2001, information was collected from 16,000 fire departments. Since the first year of the collection, an additional 11,217 departments have registered for a total of 27,217 fire departments. This leaves an estimated 2,780 departments still to respond. Additionally, about 5,440 current registered departments are contacted by USFA each year and are asked to provide updates to any previously submitted information. Collection of Information Title: National Fire Department Registry. Type of Information Collection: Extension, without change, of a currently approved information collection. OMB Number: 1660–0070. FEMA Forms: FEMA Form 070–0–0– 1, National Fire Department Registry. Abstract: This collection seeks to identify fire departments in the United States to compile a database related to their demographics, capabilities, and activities. The database is used to guide programmatic decisions and provide information to the public and the fire service. Affected Public: State, Local or Tribal Government.
