Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says the city should review its emergency medical response plan after the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

The city prepared a plan before last year's NATO conference, but Emanuel said Monday that he's asked city officials to review that plan. He wants them to see if there are any best practices to learn from how Boston responded to the bombings. He also wants to know if there are any changes that should be made to Chicago's plans.

Boston had a rehearsed emergency response plan. Chicago officials say the city has a similar plan and does training exercise to make sure its first responders are prepared.

Emanuel was speaking at an unrelated news conference.
