Rochester, N.Y. - The local chapter of the Red Cross is deploying two client casework volunteers to Boston Thursday to assist with the aftermath of the marathon bombing.
Bonnie Nolen, of Rush, and Dave Warren, of Irondequoit, will leave Thursday night.
Earlier this week, Dr. Bipin Shah, of Pittsford, traveled to Boston to provide health services.
Leaders with the local Red Cross said the recent events in Boston and Texas emphasize the importance of knowing what to do during an emergency.
Even as first responders rushed into help at both scenes, much of the initial care to the injured was provided by friends, neighbors and bystanders who were trained in CPR and first aid.
The Red Cross emphasizes whether the emergency is community-wide and involves numerous injuries, or involves a single individual being hurt at home, it is vital that someone close by knows what to do when such an emergency occurs.
