An information film providing advice on how to keep safe in the event of a firearms or weapons attack was released to the public in December 2015.
The four minute film, Stay Safe: Firearms and Weapons Attack, sets out three key steps for keeping safe and is freely available at www.npcc.police.uk/staysafe. The film, which has been seen by tens of thousands of people at police-led security briefings, is accompanied by an online information leaflet.
Run, Hide, Tell
The film and leaflet advise that if you are caught up in an incident to ‘run, hide and tell’ - guidance which can be applied to many places and situations. RUN if you can. If you can’t run, HIDE. Then, when you can, TELL the police what’s happening so they can get there quickly to stop the threat. Also tell others of the threat so they don’t approach danger.
The Run, Hide, Tell safety advice film provides information to teach 11-16 year olds how to react in the unlikely event they are caught in a gun or knife terror attack – including advice not to wait around taking pictures and filming on their phones.TV star Bear Grylls and footballer Jaime Vardy are among the leading stars supporting the initiative.
