Operation FATPOT

On November 13, 2013, BU HEM students participated in Operation FATPOT. The students tested a new Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) software for the Metro Boston Homeland Security UASI region. Students tracked police, fire and EMS calls in real time from the Boston University Medical Campus. Responses to calls were plotted on a map and then the real time dispatch data was verified with the BU Police Department. This is Phase I of multiple exercises using the FATPOT software.
