In Case of A Bomb Threat

The Bomb Threat Checklist is an orange card that you can hold up to alert your co-workers that you have received a bomb threat. It contains the same questions listed below and can be kept by or under your phone so you're immediately ready in case of an emergency.

If you receive a bomb threat:

  • Check the exact time.
  • Listen carefully to the caller's voice.
  • Write down the caller's exact words.
  • Use the Bomb Threat Checklist.
  • Ask questions, particularly about:
    • location of device,
    • time of detonation, and
    • type of device.
  • Listen for background noises.
  • Note the time the caller hangs up.
  • Hang up the phone. Immediately call 911

CALL 911 and report:

  • Your name.
  • Location and telephone number you are calling from.
  • The situation.
  • Location of the device, if known.
  • Time it is set to detonate, if known.
  • Type of device, if known.
