What to do in a terror attack – level 3

30-08-2023 15:00

French authorities published an instruction video on how to react in the event of a terror attack similar to the one which killed 130 people and injured hundreds in November 2015.

The simple step-by-step guide, which people shared on social media, gives advice on the dos and the don’ts in case of an armed attack.

The video instructs that the first reaction should be to escape, to help others where possible and to warn others of danger. The video goes on to advise on how to protect oneself if trapped in a danger zone by hiding, locking doors or blocking doors with furniture and alerting the police. The guide concludes with practical instructions on how to give first aid.

Difficult words: the dos and the don’ts (what to do and what not to do in a situation),  escape (yo run away), trapped (stuck, unable to leave), alert (to warn), conclude (to end).

You can watch the video news lower on this page.

What are some of the other measures that people can take to protect themselves in a terror attack?
