In the Event of a Terror Attack

Terror attacks may be targeted against individual people or groups, against the general public or against vital societal functions such as the electricity supply or the transport system. Even though there are many different ways to carry out a terrorist attack, there are some pieces of advice that may be applicable in most situations:

• Move to a safe place and avoid large groups of people.
• Call the police on 112 and inform them if you see something important. 
• Warn those who are in danger and help those who are in need of assistance.
• Put your mobile on silent and do not call anyone who may be in the danger area. The sound of their phone ringing may reveal the location of someone who is hiding.
• Do not call anyone with your mobile unless you have to. If the network is overloaded, it may be difficult for vital calls to get through.
• Comply with requests from the police, the fire and rescue service and the authorities.
• Do not share unconfirmed information online or in any other way.
