Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 75 / Wednesday, April 21, 2021 / Notices communities to take a new, proactive approach to improving local hazardous weather operations by providing emergency managers with clear-cut guidelines on how to improve their hazardous weather operations. By participating in this program, local agencies earn recognition for their jurisdiction by meeting guidelines established by the NWS in partnership with federal, state, and local emergency management professionals. Information and details on the StormReady and TsunamiReady programs are located at https://www.weather.gov/stormready/ and https://www.weather.gov/ tsunamiready/. A Supporter is an organization, business, facility, or local government entity actively engaged in weather safety and preparedness that is unable to meet all the requirements of the full StormReady or TsunamiReady program. Sites may be eligible based on the bylaws of the local NWS StormReady Advisory Board and endorsement of local emergency management. A local StormReady Advisory Board has final approval for Supporter designation. StormReady/TsunamiReady are voluntary programs that provide guidance and incentive to officials interested in improving their hazardous weather operations. The government will use the information collected by the StormReady/TsunamiReady application to determine whether a community has met all of the guidelines to receive StormReady/TsunamiReady recognition. II. Method of Collection The information is collected via a digital or paper form. The form is accessible on the internet in PDF. Requirements are verified by NWS staff via an in person or virtual site visit. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Sheleen Dumas, Department PRA Clearance Officer, Office of the Chief Information Officer, Commerce Department.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for an extension of a currently approved information collection. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) implemented Federal regulations at 50 CFR 665.815(b) requiring Hawaii-based longline fisherman to safely handle and release short-tailed albatrosses (Phoebastria albatrus) (STAL) caught incidentally during fishing operations. These regulations satisfy the Terms and Conditions of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) November 2000 ‘‘Biological Opinion for the Effects of the Hawaii-based Longline Fleet on the Short-tailed Albatross (Phoebastra albatrus) [FWS 1–2–1999–F–02R]’’ (revised November 18, 2002, October 8, 2004, and January 6, 2012) (BiOp) issued pursuant to Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Following the retrieval of the albatross from the ocean, the vessel operator must record the condition of the bird on a recovery data form. A veterinarian will use the information to provide advice to the vessel operator for caring for the bird. If the albatross is dead, the vessel operator must attach an identification tag to the carcass to assist U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) biologists in follow-up studies on the specimen.

Type of Request: Regular submission [extension of a current information collection]. Number of Respondents: 300. Average Hours Per Response: 10 minutes. Total Annual Burden Hours: 50. Needs and Uses: NMFS certified observers are a vital part of fisheries management. Observers are deployed to collect fisheries data in the field; observers often deploy to vessels and work alongside fishers for weeks and months at a time. The work environment observers find themselves in can be challenging, especially if the observer finds themselves a target for victim type violations such as sexual harassment, intimidation, or even assault. NOAA Fisheries’ Office of Law Enforcement prioritizes investigations PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 into allegations of sexual harassment, hostile work environment, assault and other complaints which may affect observers individually. However, it is difficult for a person to disclose if they have been a victim of a crime, and law enforcement cannot respond if no complaint is submitted. The true number of observers who have experienced victim type crimes is unknown, and the reasons why they do not report is also unclear. More information is needed to understand how many observers per year experience victim type crimes, and why they chose not to report to law enforcement. The survey will also investigate the reasons that prevented observers from reporting these violations. The results of the survey will provide the Office of Law Enforcement a better understanding of how often observers are victimized, which will enable them to reallocate resources as needed, conduct more training for observers to ensure they know how to report, conduct training to ensure people understand what constitutes a victim crime, and to increase awareness of potential victimizations. Additionally, the survey results will help law enforcement understand the barriers to disclosure, so enforcement may begin to address these impediments so they no longer prevent observers from disclosure.
