Bomb Threat

  • Use the telephone Threat Report Form Checklist which is in the top drawer in the office.
  • Upon receiving a bomb threat, the person receiving the call should make every attempt to:
    1. Prolong the call as long as possible.
    2. Identify background noises.
    3. Note distinguishing voice characteristics.
    4. Interrogate the caller as to the description of the bomb, where is it planted, when is it due to explode.
    5. Determine caller's knowledge of facility.
    6. Don’t hang up the phone! Have someone use another phone to call authorities.
    7. Once the caller hangs up, press *57 to activate phone tracing.
  • Call 911
  • If it is determined that the threat is valid, the standard fire drill procedures with possible modifications will be executed.
  • If it is determined that the building should be evacuated, everyone must evacuate to a safety zone at least 300 feet away from the building or to our school’s alternate site which is North Wall Child Development Center at 9408 N. Wall.
  • After all students have been evacuated, all utilities will be turned off by the staff person in charge.
  • Do not use a cell phone near the site. The radio waves could trigger the bomb.
  • The person in charge will be responsible for procuring the rolodex and the attendance sheet. Attendance will be taken when the students are assembled away from the school.
