Operation Mega Mess
Tri-Epic Hospital Coalition of Central Massachusetts, September 18, 2012
On September 18, 2012, the Boston University Healthcare Emergency Management Program in cooperation with the Sandwich Fire Department conducted a “hybrid” TTX for the Tri-Epic Hospital Coalition of Central Massachusetts. The incident was a mass casualty bus accident that tested the interoperability of public safety resources, surge capacity and decontamination at Harrington Hospital and coordination of statewide ambulances task forces. The exercise was a great opportunity to share information and provided the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) with feedback on the new ambulance task force communication system.
