In the wake of the recent Boston Marathon bombing, a number of you have asked for resources to support your efforts in responding to community crisis either directly related to Boston or in response to other community disasters. Professor Peggy O'Neil, Ph.D. and I have compiled a number of resources in the public domain which you might find helpful. We invite you to take advantage of these resources and to share them with others who might benefit from them.
