Organizers Ramp Up Security, Medical Presence For Weekend Races
Published May 3, 2013
The medical presence at the Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon on Sunday has been "bulked up" and "matches the higher security precautions organizers are taking" after the Boston Marathon bombings. Medical staff will carry "tourniquets, bandages and IV fluids needed to treat traumatic injuries," and some staffers will carry computer tablets "to better track patients" (PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW, 5/2).
Meanwhile, the 34th annual Broad Street Run on Sunday in Philadelphia will have "a strong visible presence of police officers on patrol throughout the 10-mile route" along with several hidden security measures. Organizers have banned backpacks at the race and mailboxes "will be either locked or removed along the route" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 5/2).
