Collaborative effort for new terrorism safety advice

Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) have collaborated with the PSHE Association and Girlguiding to take terrorism safety advice into classrooms and youth organisations for the first time.

The ACT for Youth: RUN HIDE TELL advice is designed to teach young people how to react if caught up in an a gun or knife terror attack and what to do if they see suspicious behaviour or a suspicious item.

The video is being made immediately available to schools and youth organisations.

Once young people understand the RUN HIDE TELL advice they can progress to TREAT, which has been created in conjunction with St John Ambulance, and is designed so as to allow a teacher or youth leader to show young people how to deliver trauma first aid to an injured person or themselves whilst hiding and waiting to be rescued by the police.
