Marauding Terrorist Attacks advice for non-clinical staff

Terrorist attack training session

Over the last few weeks there have been two specific marauding attacks within the UK, one being terrorist related (referred to as a marauding terrorist attack, MTA) in Reading and the second, now not being treated as a terrorist incident, in Glasgow.  However, whether these attacks are terrorist related or not the consequences to those in the vicinity of the attacker are the same.

While there is dedicated awareness training for front line staff delivered on initial training courses and a few years back on PU staff can refresh themselves on their actions via the video on East24.

For those non-clinical staff, or clinical staff thinking about how they would protect themselves and their families while they are not at work, the attached leaflet provides useful information and links.  The information allows people to prepare in advance about how they would protect themselves if they were to find themselves in an environment where a MTA incident was occurring rather than first giving it some thought when they are in the middle of an attack.

The leaflet can also be downloaded below.
