Recent acts of global and domestic terrorism have shocked our customary public safety systems and induced fear in citizens across the globe. Despite the statistic that mass shootings are only a small percentage of gun violence overall, international and domestic acts of terror involving mass shootings have received the rapt attention of American citizens. This panel will bring together local leaders and an emergency planning expert to discuss how cities are thinking about this emerging threat. Terrorism is a domestic and international issue, but the immediate response is always local. What does this look like for American cities?
