In light of the events which happened in Westminster on Tuesday 14th August, Safer Business Network would like to remind members about the Stay Safe Film.
The film gives advice for the public on the steps they can take to keep themselves safe in the rare event of a firearms or weapons attack.
Attacks in the UK and abroad remind us all of the terrorist threat we face. Police and security agencies are working tirelessly to protect the public but it is also important that communities remain vigilant and aware of how to protect themselves if the need arises.
National Counter Terrorism policing is providing advice to the public on the steps they can take to keep themselves safe in the rare event of a firearms or weapons attack.
The police service has released the short public information film called ‘Stay Safe: Firearms and Weapons Attack’ which sets out the key options for keeping safe should the worst happen. You can watch the film on the National Police Chiefs’ Council YouTube account.
The film advises those who get caught up in an incident to ‘run, hide and tell’ - guidance which can be applied to any place. We know that from case studies and real life testimony based on the experiences of people who have survived attacks the advice given in the film has saved lives.
The police service is working tirelessly to confront the terrorist threat we face. To do this they need the help of the public. Be vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour or activity to the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321 or in an emergency dial 999.
Safer Business Network would like to remind members about keeping their radio charged and operational, about sharing intelligence with the police and being alert to any suspicious behaviour. For any assistance with your radio or access to the intelligence intranet, please contact a member of the Safer Business Network team.
