Technology, Emergency Response & The Boston Bombings

Technology, Emergency Response & The Boston Bombings

Kojo explores the intersection of technology and emergency response and where it fits into the bombings that struck the Boston Marathon earlier this week.

The bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday tested the capacities of both modern technology and emergency response networks. Some of the early lessons from Boston are applicable to other cities that routinely stage large events in public spaces. Kojo explores the intersection of technology and emergency response.
