A Note About the Boston Marathon Bombings

The Adelphi University Emergency Management Program sends its deepest sympathy to the City of Boston and all the victims, both physically and emotionally, dealing with extraordinary loss and trauma.  
We commend the incredible acts of heroism performed by the Boston Police Department, Boston Fire Department, Boston EMS, marathon medical staff, and volunteers who ran towards the danger to those who were in dire need of help.  There is no doubt that their quick actions saved many lives at the Boston Marathon bombings.
