  • CEMS Software allows access to real-time, real-data on potential hazardous chemical exposures at the scene of an emergency.

  • CEMS provides “real-time” data to aid in critical decision-making, by first responders.  Includes: evacuation protocals, response options, PPE, alerting first receivers, etc.

The University of New Hampshire and Keene State College have received $2 million in joint federal funds from the U.S. Department of Justice & COPS-Community Oriented Policing Services

This collaborative project between the UNH Research Computing Center and the Keene State College Safety Studies Program will provide the following:

  • KSC receives $1.4 million to develop curricula and training programs. Build & outfit six state-of-the-art facilities to include six technology laboratories and five classrooms in its new Science Center.

This will provide distance-learning capabilities, to be used to instruct emergency personnel on the use of UNH-CEMS software to enhance the evaluation and andling of contamination sites.


  • Inventory Chemical, Biological, radiological hazards.

  • Develop & deliver curriculum. Enhance UNH-CEMS software for emergency personnel use
