  Minor League Baseball & Disaster Preparedness
         A Twitter Quiz: Covering the Bases
Since 2004, the Ready Campaign has partnered with Citizen Corps and Minor League Baseball™ to help spread
 the importance of emergency preparedness to baseball fans at stadiums nationwide. Minor League Baseball™
stadiums have provided the ideal venue and opportunity to reach millions of baseball fans and their communities
                                     to encourage them to get prepared.

               Conducting the quiz is loudspeaker simple, requiring getting the question to the
                 fans (by, JumboTron, or a combination of the two, depending on available
               equipment), following the responses on Twitter with the hashtag #imprepared,
               and selecting a winner. The ultimate goal is to get the public thinking about his
                                 or her family’s disaster preparedness plan.

 The National Disaster Recovery
          Frame Work
The National Disaster Recovery Framework is a guide
that enables effective recovery support to disaster-
impacted States, Tribes, Territorial and local
jurisdictions. It provides a flexible structure that enables
disaster recovery managers to operate in a unified and
collaborative manner. It also focuses on how best to
restore, redevelop and revitalize the health, social,
economic, natural and environmental fabric of the
community and build a more resilient Nation.

                                    U.S. Department of Health and Human
• Health and Social Services:
                                    Services

   Next Steps
In order to coordinate interagency disaster recovery issues and oversee the
implementation of the NDRF, the current Planning Division within the
Recovery Directorate will now serve as the National Disaster Recovery
Planning Division. This Division will continue to work with all stake holders to
develop:

• Annexes with the Recovery Support Function Coordinating Agencies for
  the NDRF
• Interagency all hazards recovery operational plan to support the NDRF
  and PPD 8; and
• Guidance and standard operating procedures for the Recovery Support
  Functions for the rapid activation of capabilities to support community
  recovery.
• Additional GS14/15 position in each FEMA region
  The efforts to engage the Whole Community in the
  design of this foundational document will greatly
  advance the Nation’s ability to deal with the aftermath
  of disasters, particularly those that are large-scale and
  catastrophic. We believe that the framework will help
  further our efforts to improve disaster resilience and
  recovery and better support our partners in effecting
  successful disaster recoveries
