Operation Curious George
Boston University Healthcare Emergency Management Program, June 20, 2012
The Boston University HEM program conducted an exercise in which HEM students opened an animal shelter to a small area of the South End in Boston during a power outage. HEM Students played the roles of Animal Shelter Branch Director, Public Information Officer, Animal Security, Animal Registration & Tracking, and Animal Sheltering and Animal Vaccine & Medical Units. Students took six (6) animals (stuffed animals) into the shelter and a YouTube video of the operation was produced (link forthcoming). At one point the HEM program had three (3) modes of live broadcasting operational for remote students, including a live feed of the Animal Security Unit, which was remotely monitored. All students did a tremendous job in this enjoyable exercise.
