Bomb Threat

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Situation Description

In all bomb threat or explosive device situations, to minimize the danger of life and property, all personnel must be prepared to carry out plans for bomb threat incidents when instructed to take immediate action. All school-based administrators (principals, managers, and supervisors) will, on receipt of a bomb threat to their specific building or discovery of a suspected explosive or incendiary device, immediately initiate Evacuation procedures.

Most bomb threats are received either directly or indirectly by telephone. They may arrive as written threats by mail or other means. The procedure for handling the threat will be the same.
