Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is supporting a national campaign launched on 6th March by Counter Terrorism Policing urging you to act on your instincts, if you see something unusual or suspicious, to help tackle the terrorist threat.
ACT - Make Nothing Happen campaign
The campaign is called “Make Nothing Happen” and focuses on the critical role the public can play in defeating terrorism. This is the first campaign under a new branding platform called ACT - Action Counters Terrorism. It urges the public to report suspicious activity to help police bring dangerous offenders to justice and prevent terror attacks in the UK and overseas.
At a time when the scale, volume and complexity of the terrorism threat continues to grow police are advising the public to ACT to report any potential suspicious activity or online content they come across and are concerned about.
‘Make Nothing Happen’ will see a six week national marketing campaign running across radio and digital channels. Supported by national and regional media activity this activity will highlight what to report and how to do it.
Last year a record number of people contacted the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline (tel: 0800 789 321), with the service receiving more than 22,000 calls. Officers hope this number will continue to increase if more can be done to encourage people to call or report online.
How to report something that could be terrorist related
The message is clear: “Don’t worry, don’t delay, just ACT” by:
Reporting suspicious activity to the police by calling or visiting the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321 or gov.uk/ACT
Reporting online terrorist and extremist material online by clicking on gov.uk/ACT
Remaining alert at home, work and when out and about, so we can all play our part in defeating terrorism and keeping everyone safe
