Attack or threat to the community

How to respond in the event of an attack or threat to the community

Basic principles

A distinction is made between situations in which danger is imminent and situations that require an assessment of the danger (e.g. when an abandoned object is discovered, when a suspicious postal item is received, or when a bomb threat is received by telephone call).

In any case, keep calm and apply the following instructions.

Be prepared by reading the instructions in advance.
