As an organisation responsible for the safety of many staff, students and visitors, Bath College follow government guidelines on emergency procedures, including firearms and weapons attacks. Run Hide Tell is a national campaign and as a result, we have decided to share this with all our website visitors. Attacks in the UK and abroad remind us all of the terrorist threat we face. Police and security agencies are working tirelessly to protect the public but it is also important that communities remain vigilant and aware of how to protect themselves if the need arises. National Counter Terrorism policing is providing advice to the public on the steps they can take to keep themselves safe in the rare event of a firearms or weapons attack.
