Dealing with a terrorist attack (Prepare)
The Prepare strategy aims to mitigate the impact of a terrorist attack that cannot be stopped. This work includes bringing a terrorist attack to an end and increased resilience in order to recover after an attack.
The national advice if you're caught up in an incident is to:
- Run - if you can
- Hide - if you can't
- Tell - call police on 999 and warn others to stay away
For more advice on keeping yourself safe in the rare event of a firearms or weapons attack:
- read the Government's Stay Safe guidance
- visit the CitizenAID website
- print the 'Run, Hide, Tell' poster.
