Situational Awareness. 2015. 10-year Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina Approaching

The 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina will be approaching in August 2015. 

How far have we come as a nation, and within our communities in ensuring that this type of devastation will never occur within the U.S. borders?

Are the problems that affect under-served communities only an issue with the U.S., or have other African-Descent communities have similar attributes in their response to disasters and emergencies?


Highly recommend reading Davis, Vincent B. (2012).  Lost and Turned Out:  Preparing Under-Served Communities for Disasters as one of many gauges to determine how far we’ve come in addressing issues within our communities worldwide.

Be safe, be prepared.
