ABTA supports new Counter Terrorism Policing campaign for members of the public

Published on : Wednesday, March 8, 2017

ABTAABTA is supporting the Counter Terrorism Policing’s campaign ‘Make Nothing Happen’. This is the first public facing campaign from the Government’s new brand ‘ACT: Action Counters Terrorism’. It focuses on the critical role the public can play in defeating terrorism.

 

The new campaign launches Monday 6 March and urges the public to report suspicious activity to the police to help keep communities safe. ABTA will be supporting the #ActionCountersTerrorism hashtag with posts across all of its consumer-facing social media channels, which have a potential reach of tens of thousands of people, and will encourage Members to also share campaign information.

 

The support for the campaign is part of ABTA’s broader work with the industry to raise awareness of counter terrorism initiatives. ABTA’s spring regional meetings include new counter terrorism awareness training developed in association with the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO), to protect our cities and communities from the threat of terrorism.

 

ABTA Members and Partners who attend regional meetings will be able to take part in an introduction to the series of training modules, specifically tailored to the travel industry. The aim of this free training is to highlight some of the key elements that ABTA Members may wish to consider as part of their business continuity plans, together with measures they could introduce within their own businesses for staff in the UK and overseas.

 

Nikki White, ABTA Director of Destinations & Sustainability, commented: “The Action Counters Terrorism campaign is an excellent way for people to become more aware of counter terrorism preventative measures and we are pleased to be supporting it. We believe that the industry has an important role to play in educating staff and customers in how to detect and react to the threat of terrorism and we are working with the National Counter Terrorism Security Office to provide our members with industry training, customer advice and support related to counter terrorism both here and overseas.”
