Police and firefighters are offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Public safety workers’ unions are also organizing a Boston First Responders’ Fund that will collect money to be donated to the victims.
“I want to cry … but we must not give in to fear,’’ said Tom Nee, president of the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Associations.
“We will find the person or persons responsible for disrupting the way of life here in Boston,’’ Nee said.
“Yesterday was a terrible, tragic day for our country and city, “ said Edward Kelly, president of the Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts.
