    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

    ■■ 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!
