I think that the answer depends entirely on the nature of the terrorist threat.Skuldugary wrote:The UK announced it has credible evidence that it expects a terrorist attack within a month.
Sadly, we aren't receiving any direction on what we as individuals or as a country can do. We could see an attack on our soil at any time.
It could be anything from a bomb in an office building to poisoning a water supply. Who knows? It seems impossible to prepare.
What can we do?
If it's a sustained campaign with a daily Critical threat level then you've no option but to get on with your life and hope for the best. You still have to go to school or to work if you're an adult. Go shopping, go to the cinema etc with friends. You get used to the threat (if indeed you've ever known anything different) and the minutiae of life continues.
All you can do is be aware of anything or anyone that looks odd or out of place. I remember being in a shop in Belfast when I was approx 9 or 10, it would have been around 1983-84. I can't remember now what it was that caught my attention but I said to my mum that something was odd, sure enough we were told within minutes to evacuate due to a coded bomb warning having been phoned in.
If it's a seemingly out of the blue event like 9/11 or the 7th July bombing in London then you won't have much of an inkling before hand that a terror attack will happen. Like a few other forum users have said here, getting the hell out of the area if at all able once an attack occurs is one option.
Chemical attacks are perhaps more easily prepped against,through prepping for natural disasters/civil unrest.
To be honest I find it difficult to think of anything beyond that which we can do, because terrorism is by it's very nature random and unpredictable
But you can't not get on with your life because of what ifs
