SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulation (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must ask VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:11 Apr 16, 2021 Jkt 253001 for public comment on the following: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) how to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic submission of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following proposed collection of information for which the agency is seeking approval from OMB. Title: National 911 Profile Database. OMB Control Number: 2127–0679. Type of Request: Request for extension of a currently-approved information collection. Type of Review Requested: Regular Requested Expiration Date of Approval: 3 years from date of approval. Summary of the Collection of Information: The National 911 Program is housed within NHTSA’s Office of Emergency Medical Services, which has a mission to provide coordination in assessing, planning, developing, and promoting comprehensive, evidencebased emergency medical services and 911 systems. Pursuant to 47 U.S.C. 942, Coordination of 911, E911, and Next Generation 911 implementation, the National 911 Program exists to coordinate 911 efforts, collect and create resources for State and local 911 agencies, and to oversee a grant program, specifically to upgrade the nation’s outdated 911 infrastructure. NHTSA is requesting an extension of its information collection, carried out under 47 U.S.C. 942 (a)(3)(B), to continue to collect and aggregate information from State-level reporting entities that can be used to measure the progress of 911 authorities across the country in upgrading and enhancing their existing operations and migrating to more advanced—digital, internetProtocol-enabled—emergency networks. The data will be maintained in a ‘‘National 911 Profile Database.’’ The National 911 Profile Database maintains State-specific and benchmarking data, which is later analyzed by the 911 Program for trends and findings. Collecting and sharing nationwide 911 statistics helps the 911 community PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 better understand the state of the industry. The National 911 Profile Database enables voluntary submission of data by State and territorial 911 agencies via annual data submission. The information to be collected includes data useful for evaluating the status of 911 programs across the country, along with their progress in implementing upgraded and advanced systems and capabilities. The data elements involved will fall within two major categories: Baseline and progress benchmarks. • ‘‘Baseline’’ data elements reflect the current status and nature of 911 operations from State to State. These elements are largely descriptive in nature, are intended to provide a general view of existing 911 services across the country, and are grouped within five categories: Total 911 Calls and Call Type, Number of Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and Equipment Positions, Emergency Medical Dispatch and Operations, CallHandling Quality Assurance, and Minimum Training Requirements. • ‘‘Progress benchmarks’’ reflect the status of State efforts to implement advanced next generation 911 systems and capabilities. As titled, these data elements are largely implementation or deployment benchmarks against which progress can be measured, and include: Planning, Procurement, Transition, Operations, and Maturity Level. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information To support NHTSA’s mission to save lives, the National 911 Program develops, collects, and disseminates information concerning practices, procedures, and technology used in the provision of 911 services; and to support 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and related State and local public safety agencies’ 911 technological and operational upgrades. The technology impacting 911 services continues to evolve substantially. Both public and private sectors have increasingly focused on addressing the need to upgrade and enhance the technology utilized by 911 services across the Nation. In addition, it is essential that emergency responders are able to coordinate and collaborate with 911 agencies via comprehensive and seamless emergency communication systems as they update their own part of the emergency communications network. This information collection supports efforts to upgrade 911 services by providing up-to-date information to State and local public safety entities to allow them to adequately gauge progress towards E:\FR\FM\19APN1.SGM 19APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 73 / Monday, April 19, 2021 / Notices jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES implementing more current and advanced 911 systems in a comparative fashion. While the National 911 Program will benefit from this information, it is anticipated that the greatest benefit will accrue to the State and local public safety community faced with the challenge of migrating to the next generation of 911 services and technology as they strive to respond to emergencies. The National 911 Profile Database is used to follow the progress of 911 authorities in enhancing their existing systems and implementing nextgeneration networks to more current functionality. The data in this national profile has been used and will continue to be used to accurately measure and depict the current status and capabilities of 911 systems across the United States, as well as progress made in implementing advanced technologies and operations—known as Next Generation (NG) 911. Assessments, based upon the data collected, will help draw attention to key roadblocks as well as solutions in NG911 implementation processes. Analysis of the data will also help target possible future activities and resources consistent with the goals of the program. The information collected will be available in aggregated form to national, Federal, State and local stakeholders in the public safety community. This information collection supports NHTSA’s mission to save lives, prevent injuries and reduce economic costs due to road traffic crashes by ensuring emergency responses to crashes of all nature (e.g. planes, trains, and automobiles) and maximizing the chances of survival for crash victims. Affected Public: State 911 agency administrators. Estimated Number of Respondents: Maximum number of responses: 56. Frequency: Annual. Number of Responses: Maximum number of responses: 56. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: NHTSA estimates that submitting responses to the questions included in the proposed survey instrument utilizing the Web-based tool would require an average of 98 hours per State entity to collect, aggregate and submit. Estimating the maximum number of respondents at 56 (the fifty States, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. Territories), this would result in a 20433 total burden of 5,488 hours (98 hours × 56 respondents). The total labor costs associated with the burden hours are estimated by finding the average hourly wage and multiplying by the number of burden hours. Respondents will be State, territory, and tribal government management personnel. To estimate reasonable staff expenses to respond to this information collection, the Agencies reviewed the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook Handbook and determined that the Administrative Services Manager description closely aligns with the positions of recipient staff responsible for completing this request. BLS lists the average hourly wage as $46.45.1 Further, BLS estimates that State and local government wages represent 61.8% of total labor compensation costs.2 Therefore, NHTSA estimates the hourly labor costs to be $75.16 (46.45 ÷ 0.618). The total labor cost based on the estimated burden hours is estimated at $412,478. The table below provides a summary of the estimated burden hours and the labor costs associated with those burden hours.

The respondents would not incur any reporting costs from the information collection beyond the labor costs associated with the burden hours to gather the information, prepare it for reporting and then populate the Webbased data collection tool. The respondents also would not incur any recordkeeping burden or recordkeeping costs from the information collection. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspects of this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity 1 May 2019 National Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates by ownership, Federal, State, and local government, including government- VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:11 Apr 16, 2021 Jkt 253001 of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Ms. Flaherty's phone number is (202) 366-2705 and her email address is 
[email protected]. Please identify the relevant collection of 
information by referring to its OMB Control Number.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 
(44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), before an agency submits a proposed 
collection of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a 
document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and 
otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies 
concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has 
promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a 
document. Under OMB's regulation (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must 
ask for public comment on the following: (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) how to enhance 
the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; 
(d) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic 
submission of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA 
asks for public comments on the following proposed collection of 
information for which the agency is seeking approval from OMB.
    Title: National 911 Profile Database.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0679.
    Type of Request: Request for extension of a currently-approved 
information collection.
    Type of Review Requested: Regular
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: 3 years from date of 
approval.
    Summary of the Collection of Information: The National 911 Program 
is housed within NHTSA's Office of Emergency Medical Services, which 
has a mission to provide coordination in assessing, planning, 
developing, and promoting comprehensive, evidence-based emergency 
medical services and 911 systems. Pursuant to 47 U.S.C. 942, 
Coordination of 911, E911, and Next Generation 911 implementation, the 
National 911 Program exists to coordinate 911 efforts, collect and 
create resources for State and local 911 agencies, and to oversee a 
grant program, specifically to upgrade the nation's outdated 911 
infrastructure.
    NHTSA is requesting an extension of its information collection, 
carried out under 47 U.S.C. 942 (a)(3)(B), to continue to collect and 
aggregate information from State-level reporting entities that can be 
used to measure the progress of 911 authorities across the country in 
upgrading and enhancing their existing operations and migrating to more 
advanced--digital, internet-Protocol-enabled--emergency networks. The 
data will be maintained in a ``National 911 Profile Database.'' The 
National 911 Profile Database maintains State-specific and benchmarking 
data, which is later analyzed by the 911 Program for trends and 
findings. Collecting and sharing nationwide 911 statistics helps the 
911 community better understand the state of the industry. The National 
911 Profile Database enables voluntary submission of data by State and 
territorial 911 agencies via annual data submission. The information to 
be collected includes data useful for evaluating the status of 911 
programs across the country, along with their progress in implementing 
upgraded and advanced systems and capabilities. The data elements 
involved will fall within two major categories: Baseline and progress 
benchmarks.
     ``Baseline'' data elements reflect the current status and 
nature of 911 operations from State to State. These elements are 
largely descriptive in nature, are intended to provide a general view 
of existing 911 services across the country, and are grouped within 
five categories: Total 911 Calls and Call Type, Number of Public Safety 
Answering Points (PSAPs) and Equipment Positions, Emergency Medical 
Dispatch and Operations, Call-Handling Quality Assurance, and Minimum 
Training Requirements.
     ``Progress benchmarks'' reflect the status of State 
efforts to implement advanced next generation 911 systems and 
capabilities. As titled, these data elements are largely implementation 
or deployment benchmarks against which progress can be measured, and 
include: Planning, Procurement, Transition, Operations, and Maturity 
Level.

Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the 
Information

    To support NHTSA's mission to save lives, the National 911 Program 
develops, collects, and disseminates information concerning practices, 
procedures, and technology used in the provision of 911 services; and 
to support 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and related State 
and local public safety agencies' 911 technological and operational 
upgrades.
    The technology impacting 911 services continues to evolve 
substantially. Both public and private sectors have increasingly 
focused on addressing the need to upgrade and enhance the technology 
utilized by 911 services across the Nation. In addition, it is 
essential that emergency responders are able to coordinate and 
collaborate with 911 agencies via comprehensive and seamless emergency 
communication systems as they update their own part of the emergency 
communications network. This information collection supports efforts to 
upgrade 911 services by providing up-to-date information to State and 
local public safety entities to allow them to adequately gauge progress 
towards

[[Page 20433]]

implementing more current and advanced 911 systems in a comparative 
fashion. While the National 911 Program will benefit from this 
information, it is anticipated that the greatest benefit will accrue to 
the State and local public safety community faced with the challenge of 
migrating to the next generation of 911 services and technology as they 
strive to respond to emergencies.
    The National 911 Profile Database is used to follow the progress of 
911 authorities in enhancing their existing systems and implementing 
next-generation networks to more current functionality. The data in 
this national profile has been used and will continue to be used to 
accurately measure and depict the current status and capabilities of 
911 systems across the United States, as well as progress made in 
implementing advanced technologies and operations--known as Next 
Generation (NG) 911. Assessments, based upon the data collected, will 
help draw attention to key roadblocks as well as solutions in NG911 
implementation processes. Analysis of the data will also help target 
possible future activities and resources consistent with the goals of 
the program. The information collected will be available in aggregated 
form to national, Federal, State and local stakeholders in the public 
safety community. This information collection supports NHTSA's mission 
to save lives, prevent injuries and reduce economic costs due to road 
traffic crashes by ensuring emergency responses to crashes of all 
nature (e.g. planes, trains, and automobiles) and maximizing the 
chances of survival for crash victims.
    Affected Public: State 911 agency administrators.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: Maximum number of responses: 56.
    Frequency: Annual.
    Number of Responses: Maximum number of responses: 56.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: NHTSA estimates that 
submitting responses to the questions included in the proposed survey 
instrument utilizing the Web-based tool would require an average of 98 
hours per State entity to collect, aggregate and submit. Estimating the 
maximum number of respondents at 56 (the fifty States, the District of 
Columbia, and five U.S. Territories), this would result in a total 
burden of 5,488 hours (98 hours x 56 respondents).
    The total labor costs associated with the burden hours are 
estimated by finding the average hourly wage and multiplying by the 
number of burden hours. Respondents will be State, territory, and 
tribal government management personnel. To estimate reasonable staff 
expenses to respond to this information collection, the Agencies 
reviewed the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook 
Handbook and determined that the Administrative Services Manager 
description closely aligns with the positions of recipient staff 
responsible for completing this request. BLS lists the average hourly 
wage as $46.45.\1\ Further, BLS estimates that State and local 
government wages represent 61.8% of total labor compensation costs.\2\ 
Therefore, NHTSA estimates the hourly labor costs to be $75.16 (46.45 /
