Disaster Response

Disaster Response highlights the little-known contributions of higher education in saving lives during the devastation of Hurricane Katrina — and its comprehensive planning for natural and intentional disasters in the future. Hear Katrina survivors and rescuers speak about their hazardous experiences. Watch responders train for potential catastrophes and mass casualties at a site called Disaster City. And, visit a Cold-War bunker beneath the city of Austin, where the state's head of emergency management talks about his job description "to protect Texas from threats, natural or manmade."
