Lt. Gen. Russell Honore spoke to students in KSU’s Emergency Preparedness Learning Community about his rescue efforts following the 2005 storm, which claimed around 1,800 lives. The program was formed to help first-year students prepare for a variety of emergencies.
Honore spoke to the students Monday about “creating a culture of preparedness in America,” a topic that is especially relevant as the nation watches Hurricane Sandy pummel the northeastern coast of the United States.
