Father Mark Coiro asked Holliston's Police Chief Matt Stone to speak to parishoners and residents about how they can stay safe and help to prevent tragedies like the recent Parkland Florida school shooting.

Chief Stone emphasized the need to educate ourselves about these types of crimes. As recent events show, they happen is small towns like Holliston.

Although his remarks were geared towards church gatherings, they apply to other public places of assembly and businesses.

Chief Stone spoke about the proper procedure for people involved in an incident:

Having a plan in place can save lives.

 

As officials study incidents they revise recommended actions. The current recommended repose is first to run. If you think that you can't get far enough away to escape, then hide. If that doesn't work ,then fight.

Be alert. Watch for abnormal behavior or unusual items left unattended. Chief Stone said that Holliston's schools are far ahead of other schoolo districts in training students and teachers to preare for and respond to incidents, thanks to Dr. Jackson's lead.
