WI Red Cross prepared to help in Boston if needed


The Red Cross is already playing a big role in Boston, and organizers in Wisconsin say they're ready if needed.

Red Cross officials in our state tell Newsline 9 they haven't been called on yet. They say the organization already has strong departments in Boston.

Red Cross leaders in Wisconsin say they could head east whenever necessary.

"We are there to support the victims, and the first responders and families as well. So, dependent upon how vast our need is, will determine how many additional resources roll into the Boston area," said Wisconsin Red Cross Spokesperson Barbara Behling.

The Red Cross also has a website to help locate family and friends who may have been in the Boston area when these bombings happened.
