Staying Safe on Holiday
The chances of being caught up in a terrorist incident are low but sadly we have seen atrocities take place in the UK and abroad. It is important everyone stays alert and knows what to do if the worst was to happen.
Before you head off on holiday, there are 3 things you should do:
· Check the latest UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Travel Advice for the country you are visiting
· Make sure you have adequate travel insurance – check the small print
· Watch our holiday safety film
If you find yourself in an emergency:
RUN – to a place of safety. This is better than trying to surrender or negotiate.
HIDE – it is better to hide than confront. Barricade yourself in, turn your phone to silent and use only when it is safe to do so.
TELL – Make sure you know the local emergency numbers in the country you are travelling to. For all EU countries call 112.
