Brooklyn, NY - On the heels of the terror attack in Paris on Friday, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said on Saturday that borough venues need to “redefine” what a typical fire drill is and start including training on people “firing guns” as well.

NYDAILYNEWS.com (http://nydn.us/1QEtxdw) reports that Adams said he’ll be calling an emergency meeting with the managers of local theaters, concert halls, malls, and other sizable venues to present proper protocol for dealing with terror attacks.

“After Paris, we have to refine what a fire drill is,” Adams said “In today’s world, a fire drill is not just about flames. It’s about people firing guns.”
