Upcoming Webinar – 20 Years of EPA Homeland Security Research

EPA is hosting an upcoming webinar – 20 Years of EPA Homeland Security Research – Looking Back and Moving Forward. This webinar will explore the role EPA has played in response to events such as September 11th and the Amerithrax incident. It will discuss how this incident and the events of September 11th necessitated the establishment of a Homeland Security Research Program at the U.S. EPA.

The Homeland Security Research Program provides scientific and technical expertise to help the United States to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a potential or active chemical, biological, or radiological attack. Through the years, the Homeland Security Research Program has built up capability through a foundation of research to assist emergency responders and decision-makers on a number of incidents, such as ricin, water contamination, Fukushima, and Ebola. As the Program fulfills its mission by responding to current events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, fentanyl contaminations, and cyberattacks on critical infrastructure, it also look to the future to apply what we know now to what’s potentially to come and ensure the United States is able to prepare for, respond to, and recover from those events.
