Operation Remote Control

Operation Remote Control was the first virtual WEB EOC exercise conducted by the BU HEM program on April 9, 2013. The scenario was an 8 city terrorist car bombing attack and BU students needed to be tracked and their status obtained by the Graduate Medical Sciences office. The BU GMS Office participated from the BU Emergency Operations Center while BU HEM students participated from areas including California, New Mexico, Texas, New York and Toronto, Canada. The exercise was a great success and will be replicated in the future in several Medical School offices. All BU HEM students now have working access to WEB EOC under the Healthcare Emergency Management Crisis Action Teams.
