MEDIA ADVISORY: When Terror Strikes Seminar Co-Hosted by Boston EMS & the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management

The recent attacks in Paris served to reinforce the evolving global threat of terrorism, sparking new conversations around the challenging implications for first responders and receivers. On Thursday, March 3, 2016, public safety, health, and medical professionals from more than 200 agencies, 7 different states, and 3 countries will converge to explore leadership and discuss response operations during multi-site attacks.

Media attendees will have the opportunity to hear from French officials who responded to the Charlie Hebdo and November 13th attacks, as well as local Emergency Medical Services and Emergency Management officials.  Press availability will be from 10:30 AM until 11:30 AM.
