Safety tips for Marathon Monday (Apr. 21)

April 21, 2014

Activities around the Boston Marathon have long been a tradition for MIT students. This year’s marathon has profound significance for the City of Boston, and the Boston Police have shared some tips for anyone who will be at or near the race on Monday. In particular, be alert and aware of your surroundings. “If you see something, say something.” All public drinking, open containers and intoxication will not be tolerated. Congregating on rooftops, fire escapes and porches is prohibited. Text “Boston” to 69050 to report suspicious activity and call 9-1-1 in an emergency. Be aware of security around the race, street closures, and other precautions. As you enjoy the Marathon festivities, please show your pride in Boston and MIT by being good neighbors. Photo by Vitor Pamplona.
