SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Fire Brigades Standard information collection codified in 
regulations 29 CFR 1910.156, which requires each covered employer 
establishing a fire brigade to write an organizational statement, to 
ascertain the fitness of workers with specific medical conditions to 
participate in fire related operations, and to provide appropriate 
training and information to fire brigade members. Occupational Safety 
and Health Act sections 2 and 8 authorize this information collection. 
See 29 U.S.C. 651, 657.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1218-0075.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on August 31, 2014. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on May 23, 2014 (79 FR 29803).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register. In
