Resources for Boston

Simply put, we’re so sad for Boston.

There are some resources available for those still trying to find loved ones. According to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, there are three ways to look for information about someone:

1) Mayor’s hotline 617-635-4500.

2) Red Cross Safe and Well (1800REDCROSS or redcross.org/safeandwell)

3) Google Person Finder (http://google.org/personfinder/2013-boston-explosions)

They also suggest using text messages as the cell phone network is still overworked.

For those with information (and anyone with video or photos from the finish line at the time of the explosions is asked to send those on), the tiplines in use are:

Boston crime tips hotline: 800-494-TIPS

FBI tip line: 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), prompt #3

Finally, while there have been calls for blood and platelet donation, the Red Cross and Boston-area hospitals say that right now, they have sufficient blood supply. However, these supplies will need to be replenished and encourage willing donors to schedule appointments to donate later in April and May.
