Security a team effort

11 August 2017

Three points isn't the only priority on matchday. Making sure everyone goes home safely is the most important result.

Notts County have been working closely with the police and the EFL over the summer to review security at Meadow Lane and supporters are encouraged to assist the club in their efforts to make the stadium a secure environment for all.

Following the dreadful Manchester Arena bombing in May, stadium managers from clubs have been briefed by counter-terrorism police.

It is vital that everyone - players, staff and supporters - remain vigilant and report any concerns to stewards or police.

Attacks may be rare and the chance of being caught up in one is unlikely, but the message is #ActionCountersTerrorism.

Here's what you can do to help keep yourself and others safe:

• Arrive early, allowing more time for security checks
• Minimise what you carry - fewer bag searches will speed up entry to the ground
• Be vigilant at all times and if you see anything suspicious, tell a steward immediately
• If you see anything that could pose an immediate threat to safety, call 999
• In an emergency, listen to the public address instructions and follow them
• If told to evacuate, do so immediately. Do not wait around to film events on your mobile
• Move away from the stadium as quickly as possible for your safety and to allow clear access for any emergency vehicles
• Once you are safe, follow the local police force on Twitter for updates
