Marauding Terrorist Attacks - Lockdown actions that small businesses can take to save lives

Marauding terrorist attacks (MTA) are fast-moving, violent incidents where assailants move through a location aiming to find and kill or injure as many people as possible. Most deaths occur within the first few minutes of the attack, before police are able to respond.  

NPSA have also produced a short film which introduces the quick actions a member of staff within a small business can take to lockdown their premise during a terrorist incident. The principles of which can be applied across many types of locations and ultimately acting fast can save lives.

The video, along with additional MTA guidance, can be found on the Marauding Terrorist Attacks page.
