There is a pneumonic slide in which citizenAID is used to help you give the correct information to the EMS when you call for assistance when you are involved in a terrorist incident. The EMS will need clear, concise and comprehensive information delivered in a quick format. This is especially important if you are still in danger and hiding from the threat.

First, call 999 and follow the operator's instructions and be ready to answer likely questions. During the call, it is important to keep the line open so they can gain the information they need. The S in SLIDE stands for the situation. Here, you need to say the type of incident and if you can see where the attackers are, what the numbers are and their description. The L of SLIDE stands for location. Here, you would describe exactly where the incident is, the direction of the attackers and say where you are hiding. The I of SLIDE stands for injured numbers. EMS need to know how many people are involved that are walking, not walking, children and can you see anyone who is dead and if so, how many? The D in SLIDE stands for danger. What are the weapons being used? Can you hear any shooting? What other weapons are being used to cause the terror incident? And have you heard any explosions? The final E stands for emergency services.

Do you have any help with you? And the operator will inform you about all services. This pneumonic is on a citizenAID app, which you can download from the App Store and also on the citizenAID pocket guide which you can buy from the ProTrainings store and on firstaidonline.co.uk.
