How EMS reacted to Boston Marathon bombings

Every year after the Boston Marathon, Brendan Kearney, the superintendent in chief of the Boston Emergency Medical Services, and his colleagues begin a review of how things were handled so they can adjust, adapt, and improve.

“It starts right after the Marathon. Just a couple weeks after the race, there will be a regular after-action – how did it go, what worked, what didn’t. I think a lot of people think that everything’s the same, but every year there’s something different about it, either security plans, or different patient treatments. And then everything we learn at the Marathon we incorporate into our other plans,” he said.
