This week, our country looks back and remembers the tragic events of 9/11. We remember the pain, the heartache, the disaster and the reaction… During the confusion and uncertainty, some wondered, could Houston be next? And were we safe? This week on Houston 8, we’ll look at what went on behind the scenes in Houston while the nation was under attack and ask what policies and procedures are in place today should another act of terrorism happen. Join us as we explore Emergency Management, Safety and Homeland Security in the Gulf Coast Region.
