Fitchburg, MA – In May, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) set up a temporary morgue at Fitchburg State University’s Landry Hall in preparation for the potential surge in COVID-19 deaths.
NECA Boston Chapter contractor LAN-TEL Communications was called upon to design and install a state-of-the-art CCTV video security solution for the facility. The security system allows the OCME to conduct all necessary clinical services at the temporary location in Fitchburg with real-time connectivity to its Boston headquarters.
The project was performed during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak in Massachusetts, and LAN-TEL’s field technicians performed the installation in full PPE. The high security facility had restricted access and was closely overseen by Massachusetts State Police.
