Boston public safety officials, French responders discuss terror responses

Boston public safety officials met on Thursday to prepare for when terror strikes. 

French emergency responders shared first hand accounts of their efforts to save lives during the November terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130 people and injured hundreds more. 

Crisis responders said sharing experiences and expertise is essential to saving more lives in the future. 

"It’s really important that the professionals talk to the professionals and we say what we have done," Professor Pierre Carli, said. "The aim is not to say we are better than you. The aim is to say we will do it better, any place, any time it will happen, a new terrorist attack."

Paris officials said they learned a lot about dealing with terrorist attacks from Boston’s response to the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013.
