Real-time D4H Software Aids Response To Massachusetts Terror Attack Drill

Operation SCORE was one of the largest mobilization exercises in Massachusetts history with over 700 responders.
 
CAPE COD, Mass. - Oct. 6, 2017 - PRLog -- The possibility of terror attack has all nations in a state of alert, but being prepared for the worst can certainly save many lives. Last week, response teams in Massachusetts were tested by Operation SCORE, a fictional terrorist attack - a car bomb exploding outside a town hall meeting, in one of the largest mass casualty exercises the state has seen. The real world leaked into the drill as news from Europe of the most recent London subway bomb spread.

With over 700 first responders including the Massachusetts National Guard on the rubble pile at Joint Base Cape Cod, these complex operations involve large multidisciplinary teams of Urban Search & Rescue, Technical Rescue, Hazardous Materials, and an Incident Support Team with a chief for each logistics, planning, operations, and administration. "It is real for us," said First Lieutenant Medeiros with the Massachusetts National Guard. "We are a no-notice mission. We get the call and we move out. It's not if. It's when."

With this known complexity, the operation utilized the D4H 'Live Response' software platform; the latest in real-time technologies for managing the information flows during an incident. "When the scale of the terrorist attack was determined, the Incident Command staff and Support Team at this exercise were faced with high volumes of information", explains Analyst Robert Charles with D4H. "We provide up-to-date, structured and reliable information to both heighten their situational awareness and contribute towards their incident action plan".

Live Response has been designed by D4H to track events throughout the incident, with timestamped event logs, collaborative forms, real-time mapping, vehicle assignments, personnel accountability - all visualized in an easy to understand interface of dashboards and status boards on tablets, laptops, and large monitors throughout the command post.

D4H is used by special operations teams and corporations in over 16 countries around the world. Tracking over 15 million hours of response data a year from terrorist attacks to natural disasters, from maritime emergencies to chemical spills; D4H provides a suite of solutions across Readiness, Response, and Re-Evaluation.
