How to avoid a terrorist attack

Most often targets of terrorists are visible and known targets — international airports, large resorts, venues of important events. Try not to visit such places without extreme need, and if still happened – be very careful.

When travelling and visiting large clusters of people, for example, in the subway, in airports, be vigilant. Pay attention to any little things and details lying unattended things, packages, bags, boxes. Immediately report the items found to security officers or the police. At the same time, you should not leave unattended your luggage or accept packages from strangers.

Once in a crowded room, immediately specify the location of the backup exits and stairs. Consider how it will be possible to leave the premises — always prefer the stairs as the elevators may not work or be overloaded. In the waiting rooms, stay away from windows, storefronts and other heavy fragile structures, as they will be the main danger to those around them when they explode.

Take a close look at the people around you. According to the descriptions of eyewitnesses of the attacks, you can make an approximate portrait of the suicide bomber. It’s a man or a woman with an absent, sort of non-seeing look. In the crowd, he is singled out by the braked, straight-forward manner of movement, he cannot deftly avalanche between people, unlike most residents of the metropolis. In the cabin of the bus or metro, the shahid usually does not sit down, but takes a place from which the radius of defeat will be as large as possible. The suicide bomber does not look into the eye, does not engage in conversations, is often under the influence of psychotropic substances.

Noticing a suspicious person in the crowd, try to be as far away as possible from him. If possible, inform the police or security officers, the train driver. It is not necessary to find out the relationship here — fears of a terrorist that he was exposed can cause immediate self-undermining.
