If you find yourself in a terror attack similar to the ones that hit Paris last week, do not play dead. With the growing threat of a major terrorist attack, it would be wise to learn some survival strategies. Even if you live in a major city that is bombed with either a nuclear, chemical, or biological weapon, it’s possible to survive a terrorist attack.
What to do in response to a fast-moving incident such as a firearms or weapons attack?
The advice is based on some evidence from victims of the assault on the Bataclan music hall, the deadliest site of the Paris attacks where gunmen fired indiscriminately at the crowd. Some were able to escape after playing dead among pools of blood.
But National Counter Terrorism Security Office (Nactso) says that “if you can see the attacker, they may be able to see you.”For those unable to find a safe route out, the guidance says to find cover from gunfire by hiding behind “substantial brickwork” or “heavy reinforced walls.” The document points out that cover from view does not necessarily mean you are safe as “bullets go through glass, brick, wood, and metal.”
Instead, the document urges those who find themselves in such an attack to:
- Escape if you can
- See something, say something
- Don’t under react
- Trust your gut
- Know your exits
- Run, hide, fight
- Consider the safest options.
- Is there a safe route? RUN if not HIDE.
- Can you get there without exposing yourself to greater danger?
- Insist others leave with you.
- Leave belongings behind.
- IMPORTANT: Live your life
