Bomb Threat

The majority of bomb threats are crank calls where a bomb has not been planted. The caller achieves satisfaction by observing a building being evacuated because of his/her telephone call.

If you receive a bomb threat:

  • Stay calm and courteous. Keep the caller talking. Ask for the specific location and time of detonation. Gather as much information from the caller as possible.
  • Try to signal a co-worker to listen on the telephone line, if possible.
  • Write down the information. Listen for background noises. Listen closely to the voice for accents, speech impediments or age indications.
  • If you see a suspicious object, DO NOT HANDLE THE OBJECT OR TURN ROOM LIGHTS ON OR OFF. Begin moving people away from the area around the device.
  • Immediately call 911.
