Proposed Project Ready CDC—New—Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response (OPHPR), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Under the Authority of Section 301 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 241), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is responsible for administering the Ready CDC program. Ready CDC is an educational intervention designed to increase awareness about personal and family preparedness and increase the number individuals who are prepared for a disaster in their community. As a response Agency, CDC is responsible for responding to national and international disasters. One component of ensuring staff are prepared to respond to disasters is ensuring that the workforce has their personal and family preparedness plans in place. Research has shown that individuals are more likely to respond to an event if they perceive that their family is prepared to function in their absence during an emergency. The Ready CDC educational intervention consists of a Personal Preparedness Workshop as well as three targeted communications to reinforce concepts discussed during the workshop. The audience for this intervention will be CDC federal employees with a responder role (Phase I), other samples of the CDC workforce including both federal staff and contractors (Phase II), and audiences outside of the CDC, possibly including other external governmental and nongovernmental organizations (Phase III). CDC requests Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for three years to collect information that will measure the initial preparedness of participants, satisfaction with the Personal Preparedness Workshops, and the change in individual knowledge and behaviors related to personal and family preparedness. CDC has developed three data collection instruments: (1) PreWorkshop Survey; (2) Ready CDC Workshop Evaluation; and (3) FollowUp Survey. Collectively, these E:\FR\FM\13FEN1.SGM 13FEN1
