Our condolences go out to the victims of the terrifying attacks that unfolded on Monday in Boston.
First responders, emergency personnel, and fellow spectators acted heroically by aiding those injured in the blasts, exhibiting courage and p
reparedness in the face of disaster.
While we can’t always prevent tragedies that put people in serious danger, what we can do is be prepared and know how to respond to emergencies, whether they are natural disasters or the work of people who seek to cause harm. Please take some time to make sure you have the knowledge to respond to crisis.
