This information was made public shortly after the Paris attacks in November which left over 100 people dead.

In light of the recent attack on an Orlando gay club, we’re republishing this information.

Officials have given the following specific advice in relation to attacks undertaken with firearms or other weapons.



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



If you can’t RUN, HIDE

If you can see the attacker, they may be able to see you

Find cover from gunfire such as substantial brickwork or heavy reinforced walls


Be aware of your exits

Try not to get trapped

Be quiet, silence your phone


Lock and barricade yourself in

Move away from the door


Call police: What do the police need to know?


Location: Where are the suspects?

Direction: Where did you last see the suspects?

Descriptions: Describe the attacker, numbers, features, clothing, weapons

Provide further information: Casualties, type of injury, building information, entrances, exits, hostages

And stop other people entering the building if it is safe to do so

They also warned that when the police do arrive that they may point guns at you and “treat you firmly”. The advice continues:

When police arrive, they may point guns at you, treat you firmly, question you, and be unable to distinguish you from the attacker.

You ought to remain calm, keep your hands in view, avoid sudden movements that may appear a threat, and follow officers’ instructions
