    Important advice - what to do in the event of a terrorist attack

    Useful information to know in the event of a terrorist attack. Hopefully you will never need it

    Run

    Escape if you can
    Consider the safest options
    Is there a safe route? RUN if not HIDE
    Can you get there without exposing yourself to greater danger?
    Insist others leave with you
    Leave belongings behind

    Hide

    If you cannot RUN, HIDE
    Find cover from gunfire
    If you can see the attacker, they may be able to see you
    Cover from view does not mean you are safe, bullets go through glass, brick, wood and metal
    Find cover from gunfire e.g. substantial brickwork / heavy reinforced walls
    Be aware of your exits
    Try not to get trapped
    Be quiet, silence your phone and turn off vibrate
    Lock / barricade yourself in
    Move away from the door

    These precautions may provide some degree of protection, and can serve as practical and psychological deterrents to would-be terrorists.
    • Schedule direct flights if possible, and avoid stops in high-risk airports or areas.
    • Be cautious about what you discuss with strangers or what others may overhear.
    • Try to minimize the time spent in the public area of an airport, which is a less protected area. Move quickly from the check-in counter to the secured areas. Upon arrival, leave the airport as soon as possible.
    • As much as possible, avoid luggage tags, dress and behavior that may draw attention to yourself.
    • Keep an eye out for abandoned packages or briefcases, or other suspicious items. Report them to airport authorities and leave the area promptly.
    • Avoid obvious terrorist targets, such as places where Westerners are known to congregate.
    • Watch for people following you or "loiterers" observing your comings and goings.
    • Report any suspicious activity to local police, and the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
    • Keep a mental note of safe havens, such as police stations, hotels, and hospitals. Formulate a plan of action for what you will do if a bomb explodes or there is gunfire nearby.
    • Select your own taxicabs at random. Don't take a vehicle that is not clearly identified as a taxi. Compare the face of the driver with the one on his or her posted license.
    • If possible, travel with others.
    • Be sure of the identity of visitors before opening the door of your hotel room. Don't meet strangers at your hotel room, or at unknown or remote locations.
    • Refuse unexpected packages.
    • Check for loose wires or other suspicious activity around your car.
    • Be sure your vehicle is in good operating condition.
    • Drive with car windows closed in crowded streets. Bombs can be thrown through open windows.
    • If you are ever in a situation where somebody starts shooting, drop to the floor or get down as low as possible. Don't move until you are sure the danger has passed. Do not attempt to help rescuers and do not pick up a weapon. If possible, shield yourself behind a solid object. If you must move, crawl on your stomach.

    Look for anything that seems out of the ordinary, such as:


    • People in stationary vehicles watching a building or structure
    • Vehicles moving slowly near public buildings, structures or bridges, or parked in suspicious circumstances
    • People using recording equipment, including camera phones, or seen making notes or sketches of security details
    • Someone suspicious paying close attention to specific entry and exit points, stairwells, hallways or fire escapes
    • People loitering at or near premises for long periods and watching staff, visitors and deliveries for no apparent reason
    • People asking detailed or unusual questions about buildings and business operations, facilities (such as room layouts), security or parking for no apparent reason
    • Challenge those in offices and ‘off limits’ areas, plant rooms and similar – report matters immediately to your security manager

    ■■ Run to safe place if there’s no immediate danger. Take others. Leave belongings.

    ■■ If there is nowhere to go, or the threat is too close, hide by barricading yourself in and turn phones to silent with vibrate off.

    ■■ Phone emergency number when safe (Find number in advance). In EU, it is 112.

    Very informative article. This information needs to be stressed more.

    As was said in the video, "it's not a matter of if, but rather when" any place will be struck by terrorists. What a way to live!

    10 Tips for Surviving a Terrorist Vehicle Attack

    Posted on June 5, 2017 by Greg Ellifritz
    “The latest issue of Rumiyah, a new magazine from the terror group aimed at English-language speakers, included an article titled “Just Terror Tactics” that outlined ideal vehicles to use in terror attacks as well as ideal targets.

    “Though being an essential part of modern life, very few actually comprehend the deadly and destructive capability of the motor vehicle and its capacity of reaping large numbers of casualties if used in a premeditated manner,” the article said.

    The article also cited the attack in Nice, France, in July, in which a supposed ISIS supporter killed 86 people by plowing into a crowd with a truck on Bastille Day.

    “Vehicles are like knives, as they are extremely easy to acquire,” the article said.”
    1) Face traffic when walking along the street. These attacks really aren’t preventable. Your best bet is to see the attack coming as quickly as possible and take evasive action. If you are walking along a sidewalk with your back facing traffic, you can be run down very quickly from behind without any warning.
    2) If you have a choice, walk along streets that have vehicle blockades or cars parked at the curb. Some urban areas have vehicle blockades to prevent cars from driving onto the sidewalks. Where possible, walk on sidewalks that utilize those protective features
    3) Watch for danger signs. Be alert for speeding vehicles, sounds of collisions, revving engines, or sudden unusual vehicle movements.
    4) Don’t rush to help the injured. In each of the historical worldwide vehicle attacks, injured people were stacked on the sidewalk like cord wood. Immediately after the attack, you may feel compelled to rush in and help those who have been hurt. Take a moment and assess the scene before wading into the chaos.
    5) Move indoors immediately, but don’t stay there. A sturdy structure offers a decent refuge from a vehicle driven by a terrorist intent on killing people. Get inside quickly. Stay away from large glass windows/doors and exterior walls
    This safe haven you chose may soon become the next battleground. Don’t hang out there. Seek shelter immediately to buy yourself some time. As soon as it is possible, flee the area from the building’s rear exit.
    6) Stay away from the attack vehicle and be alert for secondary attacks. Here’s my prediction for the next evolution of this type of attack. Terrorists will place a bomb in the car they used to run people over. Explosives set to go off 10 minutes after the vehicle attack.
    7) Don’t draw your firearm while you are attempting to figure out what’s happening.
    The cops will be coming quickly. There may be other CCW carriers on the scene. You standing around a bunch of dead bodies with a gun in your hand is a look you probably want to avoid.
    8) Don’t loiter on unprotected sidewalks.
    If you are walking on a busy street and need to stop in order to tie your shoes, write a text, or speak with a friend, stop at a spot on the sidewalk that offers you some protection from a car hopping the curb.
    9) Be able to deal with charging attackers. Few “gun people” train empty hand defenses against a person who is attacking with a bladed weapon
    Shooting bullseye targets is one thing. Shooting as you are being slashed or stabbed is a different skill set entirely.
    10) Know how to treat knife wounds, vehicle impacts, and blast injuries. Having the knowledge to treat battlefield injuries is absolutely critical in today’s world. Your Red Cross First Aid/CPR course is not adequate training to prepare you for the mass casualty battlefield trauma environment
    .
    Carrying medical gear like a tourniquet and hemostatic gauze while in large crowds is a smart idea. Get some medical training and carry a tourniquet with you any time when you are in a situation that may be ripe for a terrorist attack
