Alum Success

Keith M. Campbell

"The education that I received at Lake Superior State University has opened many doors for me. I have worked with Firefighters and Paramedics for over thirty years as a co-worker, educator, and student. I have been very blessed in my life to have these opportunities. I truly believe that education is the cornerstone of everyone’s career and LSSU provides the best.

My future goals are to become the Director of a Fire Science program and follow in the footsteps of the great educators that I have had the privilege of learning from. This will not be easy, but I believe that these Professors have prepared me to be successful. My achievements will be a direct result of the knowledge that they have bestowed upon me. It will then be my obligation to share this knowledge with others. ”

National Preparedness Month

Third annual effort happening this September

Being prepared is more than the Boy Scout motto, it's always a good idea when it comes to emergencies. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is once again sponsoring National Preparedness Month this September to increase public awareness and to help people be better prepared for a variety of "what if?" scenarios.

Here are a few preparation tips from the National Preparedness Month Coalition that you can share with your student and other family/friends:

  • Get a Kit: Gather supplies such as water, food, a battery-powered radio, a flashlight and a first aid kit that will allow you to survive for at least three days in an emergency.
  • Make a Plan: Plan now for what you will do in an emergency. How will you communicate? Will you shelter in or evacuate?
  • Be Informed: What specific threats could impact your community, from natural disasters to potential terrorist threats? And how should you respond? Learn about the emergency plans already established for your area at www.ready.gov so you have a place to start.
  • Get Involved: Consider being trained in first aid and emergency response, and getting involved in preparing your community for emergencies. You can learn more through the Citizen Corps at www.citizencorps.gov.

At http://www.ready.gov/, you can find a list of supplies for emergency kits, info and templates to create an emergency plan, and more.

Campus Specific

Most campuses have a crisis response plan in place. Encourage your student to talk with residence life staff and others about what they should do in case of emergency.

"I love the fast pace environment, the people in the profession, and the adrenaline rush of running into a burning building or saving someone’s life," she says.

Rondeau chose Lake Superior State University because it offers the first accredited four-year fire science degree in the United States. She also jumped at the challenge of LSSU's Honors program, which requires her to complete 21 Honors credits, including 10 credits for an Honors seminar/thesis project.
