WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Subcommittee on Emergency Management and Technology Chairman Anthony D’Esposito (R-NY) announced a field hearing at the 9/11 Memorial Museum on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, at 9:15 AM ET. The hearing will examine our nation’s evolving threat landscape over two decades after the September 11th terrorist attacks as well as state, local, and federal coordination efforts for national emergencies.

“Over two decades after the horrific September 11th terrorist attacks on our nation and the creation of the Department of Homeland Security in its wake, the threats we face at home and abroad remain complex,” Subcommittee Chairman D’Esposito said. “As a retired NYPD detective, I know firsthand the challenges facing first responders, emergency management partners, and all levels of government as we work together to secure the homeland and ensure preparedness and resilience in the event of a catastrophe. This field hearing is a crucial opportunity to remember the thousands of innocent lives taken in those acts of evil, honor the courageous first responders who rushed into danger, and support the survivors—while reaffirming our commitment to the Committee’s founding mission.”
