Boston EMS prepares for Marathon Monday

Boston EMS is not rooting for 87 degrees, but wants this year's story to be about the weather, and the runners, once again


BOSTON — Even after last year's marathon, Boston EMS is preparing for this year the way they do for most, with an eye on the weather.

The bombings, of course, they couldn't predict. But at a major sporting event, with a majority of amateurs on the course, they will be ready for anything. Special Ops EMT Denny Chan was at the wheel guiding NECN through the city, approaching the finish line, when he quickly diverted his route to a man down in South Boston.

Two weeks before this year's marathon, these are ordinary days for Boston EMS. This is what they do, just as they did last year in the weeks leading up to the 117th running of the Boston Marathon.
