Bomb Threat


How to Do:

1. If you observe a suspicious object or potential bomb on campus, do not handle the object! Clear the area immediately.  Notify Campus Security and the Executive Director of Facilities and Safety. If the Executive Director of Facilities and Safety is unavailable, notify the Executive Vice President at the earliest possible opportunity.

2. All bomb threats are to be taken seriously.

3. Any person receiving a phone call bomb threat should attempt to ask the caller:

a. When is the bomb going to explode?

b. Where is the bomb located?

c. What kind of bomb is it?

d. What does it look like?

e. Why did you place the bomb?

4. Keep talking to the caller as long as possible and record the following:

a. Time of call.

b. Age and sex of caller.

c. Speech pattern, accent, possible nationality.

d. Emotional state of the caller.

e. Background noise.

5. Emergency Response personnel will conduct a detailed bomb search. Employees are requested to make a quick inspection of their area for a suspicious object and to report the location to the Emergency Response personnel. Do not touch the object! Do not open drawers, cabinets, or turn lights on or off.

6. If an emergency exists, activate the building alarm.

7. Call Campus Security.

8. When the building evacuation alarms are sounded or an emergency exists, walk quickly to the nearest marked exit and alert others to do the same.

9. ASSIST INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES IN EXITING THE BUILDING.

10. Once outside, move to a clear area at least 500 feet away from the affected building. Keep streets, fire lanes, hydrants, and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and crews.

11. Follow all instructions of emergency response teams.

12. DO NOT RETURN TO AN EVACUATED BUILDING unless you are given the “all clear” signal by the appropriate university personnel. The signal that the staff and students can return to an evacuated building will be initiated by emergency response personnel. Once the Emergency Director receives the “all clear” signal, s/he will communicate this to the Building Runners, who will notify evacuated staff and students that they can return to the building.
