bomb threat

  1. If you observe a suspicious object or potential bomb on campus, DO NOT handle the object.  Leave the area immediately and call 911 or 6235.

  2. Every call must be treated as real until verified.

  3. Any person receiving a phone call that a bomb or other explosive device has been placed on campus should ask the caller the following:

    What is the Caller's ID?                   ____________________
    When is the bomb going to explode? ____________________
    Where is the bomb located?             ____________________
    What kind of bomb is it?                  ____________________
    Why did you place the bomb?          ____________________

  4. Remain calm and continue talking to the caller as long as possible.  Record the following:

    Time of the call                              ____________________
    Age and gender of caller                 ____________________
    Speech pattern, accent                   ____________________
    Emotional state                              ____________________
    Background noise                          ____________________

  5. Buildings will NOT be evacuated unless police personnel make a determination that a delay in evacuation would unnecessarily increase the risk factor to occupants.  The senior police person will consult with the administrator or the department head if there is time to do so.

  6. Police personnel will conduct a detailed bomb search.  Employees are requested to make a cursory inspection of their work areas for suspicious objects and to report their location to police personnel.  DO NOT touch the object.

  7. The search team should not try neutralizing, removing or disturbing a suspected bomb.
    Removal is to be attempted by specialized bomb disposal experts only.

  8. Building Facility Managers should look for a police command post as they may be requested to assist with crowd control.
