Clermont residents to be hailed as ReadyOhio champions at July 30 Reds game
BATAVIA, Ohio – Moscow residents Michele Hanselman and Linda Carter, both integral to the recovery of the village after it was devastated by a tornado in March 2012, will be introduced as ReadyOhio champions at the Reds game July 30. Hanselman will throw a ceremonial first pitch, and Carter will catch the pitch before the game starts.
ReadyOhio (readyohio.gov) focuses on helping Ohioans prepare for any disaster, said Tamara McBride with the Ohio Emergency Management Agency. At the Reds game, ReadyOhio will be recognized as part of a Pre-Game ceremony, with a live public service announcement on emergency preparedness.
On March 2, 2102, an EF3 tornado tore through southeast Clermont County, killing three people and damaging or destroying 353 structures, including 227 residential structures. Both Hanselman and Carter served as community advocates on the Ohio Valley Long Term Recovery Committee.
