The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Act Public Law 93-288, as amended authorizes training programs for emergency preparedness. The information obtained from the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) form will be used for independent study course enrollment and to provide course materials to applicants. Applicants can select as many courses as they want, but they will be actively enrolled in only one course at a time. When applicants complete each course with a passing score, new course material from the course menu selection will be sent to applicants.
FEMA plans to follow this emergency request with a request for a 3-year approval. The request will be processed under OMB's normal clearance procedures in accordance with the provisions of OMB regulation 5 CFR 1320.10.
