Thank you for your interest in the Houston region CCTA lecture series. As part of the Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attack (CCTA) Grant Program, the Houston region is hosting a series of seminars addressing various aspects of CCTAs and active attacks. The seminars bring subject matter experts to the region to present on their experiences, lessons learned, and best practices with response and recovery efforts to recent high-profile CCTA and active shooter incidents. The series will run from December 2021 through April 2022.
This series is open to partners and stakeholders inside and outside of the greater Houston region; however, to comply with the covid requirements of our host facilities, there may be space limitations. Therefore, priority may be given to participants whose roles more directly correspond to the topic. Additionally, space may be reserved to allow for a broader audience of multidisciplinary and multijurisdictional participants.
