You are invited to attend the Medical Response Workshop: Unified Regional Response to a Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attack (CCTA), hosted by the South East Texas Regional Planning Commission (SETRPC) and the Borders, Trade, and Immigration (BTI) Institute (a Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence) on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 26-27, 2018, at Lamar University’s Montagne Center, 4400 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, Beaumont, Texas. Check in starts at 7:30 am.
This two-day workshop focuses on the Medical Response to mass shootings and Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attacks. Invited speakers include Incident Commanders, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), Paramedics, emergency room and hospital staff, and medical response leaders involved in recent high-profile mass shootings and CCTA incidents (San Bernardino Terrorist Attack; Las Vegas Music Festival Shootings, Dallas Police Shootings, Aurora Theater Shootings, the Sutherland Springs Church Shootings, and more) to share their experiences, discuss the challenges they faced, and identify best practices and lessons learned from those events. These best practices, as well as recommendations compiled from incident after action reviews, Department of Justice publications, and Department of Homeland Security doctrine, will be used as a baseline for developing plans, synchronization matrices, training tools and the creation of technological solutions to better prepare first responders nation-wide.
- Day 1 of the workshop will include presentations on Lessons Learned for first responders and hospital personnel who led the medical response in the aftermath of CCTAs and Active Shooter incidents. Participants will hear first-hand from Incident Commanders, EMTs, Paramedics, hospital personnel and Fire Services personnel regarding their experiences, challenges, the lessons learned in the midst of response efforts.
- Day 2 of the workshop is focused on developing planning tools and techniques to address medical response concerns in organization, plans, policies, procedures, equipment, and training and exercises, and lists of recommended actions for officers to prepare for CCTAs and active shooter incidents.
