British counterterrorism officials have released information on how best to survive a terror attack.

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

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 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

 

Tell

  • 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
