Run Hide Survive™ was COMMENDED at the 2018 UK Counter Terror Business Awards

Terror attacks - Criminal assaults - Stabbings - Active shooters - Hostile intruders - What is the risk facing all of us?

Why responder training for Terror attacks is so important for businesses today

You’ll  probably know that UK police and security services have prevented at least 15 terrorist attacks since 2013.

In 2017 the UK suffered the most Terror attacks of any EU country

There are currently 600+ investigations led by UK Counter Terrorism Policing targetting some 3,000 people who pose the biggest threat to the UK.

In 2017 the police and security service prevented 9 attacks and 5 attacks were successful .

2018 was a ‘quiet’ year for Terror attacks in the UK which lulled  people and businesses  into a false sense of security.

With the ‘defeat’ of IS in the Middle East, many fighters have returned to their homelands in Europe where they plan to continue their fight in the form of terror attacks.

The Extreme right wing terror threat  is a growing n the UK and worldwide.

The marauding firearms attack on the Christchurch mosques in 2019 highlighted the growing threat posed by Extreme right terrorists.

Terror attacks are not London centric with notable arrests and convictions of people planning and preparing terror attacks throughout the UK.

In Edinburgh, Scotland a man unknown to Police or Security services was convicted of making nail bomb IED’s . He had Extreme right wing beliefs.

A ‘SEVERE’ terror threat assessment is in place throughout the UK, which means an attack is ‘HIGHLY LIKELY’.

There is an 80% chance of a Terror attack taking place EACH day.

There have been no attacks in the UK since 2017 however authorities have disrupted numerous plots to carry out attacks and  it is only a matter of time before another attack happens. 

Attackers’ weapons of choice can include

  • knives and edged weapons
  • firearms
  • acid and chemicals
  • vehicle ramming
  • explosives

Terrorists ,Criminals and Hostile intruders will target busy locations like

  • shopping malls
  • sports stadia
  • entertainment venues
  • rail stations, airports & transport hubs
  • schools, colleges and universities
  • places of worship
  • public places
  • hotels

heightening the vulnerability of people who work there or who visit these places as customers or clients.
