Aurora’s Legacy 2013
On Dec 19th, Boston University Healthcare Emergency Management conducted a joint public/private sector Active Shooter exercise, entitled Operation “Aurora’s Legacy” at the Boston University Medical Campus. This is a continuation of our research into Active Shooter incidents. The exercise involved several private sector businesses testing new active shooter mitigation technologies. The exercise was used as both a learning tool and an academic endeavor as students from both the Methods of Incident Command System class and Medical; Death Legal Investigation classes participated as part of their final examinations. It was also a continuation of a previous active shooter dril conducted at BU in the Bakst auditorium in 2010: WCVB_09-29-2010_06.09.17. Stay tuned to the HEM Website, Facebook and Twitter pages for upcoming exercises.
