LAN-TEL Communications Completes Security Project for MA Office of Chief Medical Examiner Temporary Morgue Facility at Fitchburg State University

September 15, 2020 – In May 2020, 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 their 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 close overseen by Massachusetts State Police.  

LAN-TEL’s completed the urgent project in May, ahead of schedule.
