ABSTRACT

Boston Marathon Bombings: Medical Response Activities at the Incident Site   [open pdf - 960KB]

"Each year, the Boston metropolitan area emergency management and response communities plan and train extensively for a mass casualty response at the Boston Marathon. In addition, these agencies conduct joint exercises to validate existing plans and systematically test local capacities and capabilities. These multi-agency, multi-disciplinary, and multi-jurisdictional activities ensured that emergency personnel at the marathon finish line had the knowledge and expertise needed to respond to the April 15, 2013, bombings in an exemplary manner and save lives."
