Are You Prepared?

Survival

General Honoré shares his emergency preparedness recommendations.

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Lt. General Russel L. Honoré (U.S. Army, ret.) was called in to take charge of what had clearly been a failed government response to the catastrophe. Hailed for his organizational skills, and for stabilizing and improving a terrible situation, he learned one thing for certain.  “Our country," he says, "must create a culture of preparedness.”

In an attempt to better prepare our government, communities, and citizens, General Honoré has written a clear and detailed road map called: "SURVIVAL: How a Culture of Preparedness Can Save You and Your Family From Disasters."

He shared some of his key recommendations with host Mike Cuthbert.  To listen, click the audio player to the left.

AARP's "Create the Good" has an excellent round-up of preparedness resources.
