The following guidance provides essential advice on how to plan for an emergency situation:
NaCTSO provides detailed protective security advice for businesses, communities and the public. This information is available from the NaCTSO website.
The BCA urges all businesses to contact their local Counter Terrorism Security Advisers (CTSA). They are specialists in their field and are trained to work with businesses to identify and assess sites that may be vulnerable to terrorist or extremist attack. CTSAs can also provide help and advice on devising and developing appropriate security plans. Find your local contact here.
You can also contact the Ministry of Defence or email@example.com British Transport Police.
