Tucson first responders to review, change emergency plans

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Boston Marathon explosions have caused cities across the country to re-examine security. 

City leaders in Tucson say first responders will also review what happened to see if any changes are needed here.

Typically police and fire crews are the first to respond to disasters.  They of course have plans in place to respond to major emergencies, but those plans are always evolving. 

Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik explains that city leaders along with first responders will review the response to the Boston bombings to see what they can learn.

"Our public safety command structure looks at these incidents that happened in Boston.  We made changes when 9-11 happened.  We made changes when January 8th happened.  It changes every day," said Kozachik. 

And law enforcement says public safety is everyone's responsibility.  They ask that if residents see something suspicious report it.
