More travel advisory messages will be added in a KPMg advisory issued today.
It comes as Transport Minister Shane Ross says more advice is needed on what to do in a terror attack and that a separate advisory will be issued in the coming days.
“If we can’t provide advice on how to react, the risk of a terrorist attack increases,” he said.
Mr Ross said the travel advisory will not only help travellers but also help authorities understand the security risks they are facing.
“We need to provide guidance on how people should react, how they should act, and we need to get the community involved,” he added.
Mr Tassie says he wants the advisory to be seen as an opportunity to give advice to people about what to expect during the worst of the situation.
“There’s no doubt it will be a huge help in the community, but it also gives a lot of guidance about what’s going to happen if we have a terrorist incident,” he told the ABC.
“It gives people the confidence to think about what they need to do, what’s best for them, and that’s the best advice I can give.”
He said it is important for the community to understand how to respond if they are in a terrorist situation.
Mr O’Dowd says the advice will help the community understand how dangerous things can be, and they should prepare to protect themselves.
“This is something that will make people feel safer, so they’re more prepared for anything, whatever the situation is, whether it’s a terrorist threat or not,” he says.
Mr Kavanagh says he is excited about the new advisory and says it will help everyone to prepare for what may happen in a terrorism attack.
“People need to understand that they’re in an incredibly vulnerable position, particularly with respect to our airport and our city centres,” he tells 7.30.
“I’m glad that the advice is now on the table, and I think that’s a positive thing.”
Mr O ‘s comments echo comments made by Minister Ross last week, who said the advisory would help ensure the public understood what to anticipate and what to act on.
“The advice will be for everyone, but the community can be of some assistance,” he explained.
“You need to be aware that there’s going be some things that you should and shouldn’t do in certain situations.”
