What to do In the Event of a Coup

  • CoupStay out of the range of gunfire by staying indoors and away from windows

  • Let friends and family know you are okay
  • Follow the direction of local authorities
  • Avoid being defiant or combative, despite your opinion of the situation
  • If the conflict endures, leave the country or travel to a safer region if possible
  • Downloading a police scanner app could help find the safest way out of the country
