These three words could save your life: Run, Hide, Tell
Firearms and weapon attacks are rare but all communities - including learners and staff at Morthyng Group Limited - need to be prepared.
If you should get caught up in an incident, our advice is simple:
Run, Hide, Tell.
Run to a place of safety
. This is a far better option than to surrender or negotiate. If there is nowhere to go then...
Hide, it’s better than to confront
. Remember to turn your phone to silent and turn off vibrate. Barricade yourself in if you can. Then finally, and only when it is safe to do so…
Tell the police
by calling 999.
Moira MacCormac (safeguarding lead) says: “No one wants to think about anything bad happening at Morthyng Group Limited but it makes total sense to be prepared. Read the advice, hope you never have to use it but know that if the worst ever happens you will be prepared and know what to do.”
The UK’s Senior National Coordinator for Protective Security, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Lucy D'Orsi, adds: “There is no specific intelligence to say colleges and universities are being targeted and the chances of being caught up in a terrorist incident or weapons attacks are still low. But sadly we have seen lethal assaults carried out by people with a variety of deadly motives. So it is important everyone stays alert and knows what to do if the worst was to happen.”
Remember if you see anything suspicious that is giving you cause for concern, trust your instincts and ACT. Contact/text Moira MacCormac or Lisa Scott on 07785468276 E-Mail firstname.lastname@example.org in an emergency always call 999.
