Police video tells Brits what to in a terror attack on holiday
This is the video that Counter Terrorism Police have released to tell British holidaymakers what to do in a terror attack on a resort.
The video features gunmen invading a hotel where British people are staying. The holidaymakers are then shown making their way to safety using the “run, hide, tell” message of the video.
The fictitious gunmen are then eventually defeated by armed police who storm the hotel to deal with the threat.
Holidaymakers and hotel staff in the video are shown following the “run, hide, tell” message by first attempting to run away from the hotel along a safe route, avoiding dead ends, bottlenecks, and anywhere that might be in the line of fire.
Those that can’t find a safe route are then shown hiding within the hotel. The video tells people to make sure they are behind a locked door and hidden away from the door, it also recommends barricading the door if you can.
People hiding are also told to turn their phones to silent and not to make any sound that might give away their position.
The people who have successfully run along a safe route away from the danger within the hotel are advised to wait until they are certain they are safe to call for police.
In most EU countries, and a lot of other countries around the world, the number is 112.
Police will want to know everything you can tell them about the attackers, including descriptions, where you last saw them, and what direction they were moving.
The video then shows how armed police will sweep the hotel looking for attackers, warning anyone hiding that they should expect police to treat them as possible attackers and to do everything they are told by police.
Only once the hotel has been secured will police evacuate anyone hiding within the building or resort. Advice on the National Police Chiefs’ Council says:
Run to a place of safety.
This is a far better option than to surrender or negotiate.
If there’s nowhere to go…
It’s better to hide than confront.
Remember to turn your phone to silent and turn off vibrate.
Barricade yourself in if you can.
Then finally and only when it is safe to do so…
Tell the police. dial 112
