We’re supporting a new national campaign which aims to educate young people about how to stay safe in a terrorist attack.
TV star Bear Grylls and England footballer Jamie Vardy are among the stars supporting the first phase of an initiative designed to teach 11 to 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 on their phones.
With the UK terror threat level at SEVERE, children will be taught to RUN if they are able to, HIDE if they are not, and TELL police of the threat only when it is safe to do so. They will also be advised to warn others about an on-going threat, and crucially told NOT to stop and use their phones until they are safely away from danger.
The campaign’s launch video is here https://youtu.be/s3y51Vd4kJ4
