Bomb Threat (MS Code 97-37-21) Utilize Bomb Threat Report Form Definition: A bomb threat usually occurs when the school receives an anonymous telephone message advising that a bomb has been placed somewhere on the school site. A bomb threat may be a prelude to attempted robbery, hostage taking, kidnapping, or just a student trying to get out of a test at school. However, a threat must be taken seriously at all times. Most bomb threat telephone calls are very brief; the message is stated in a few words and then the caller hangs up the telephone. Every effort should be made to obtain detailed information from the caller, such as the five questions listed below. If possible, use the BOMB THREAT form to record information and record identifying qualities of the caller. 1. When is the bomb going to explode? 2. What kind of bomb is it? 3. What does the bomb look like? 4. Where did you place it? (Attempt to get the caller to identify the building or location.) 5. Why did you place the bomb in the school? Emergency Procedure: Clerical staff will immediately notify the principal/designee of the bomb threat. Clerical staff will document the threat (use the bomb threat checklist). The principal will notify law enforcement by calling 911 and School Resource Officer. The principal will decide whether to evacuate immediately and search the facility or to make a preliminary search prior to any other action. Principal will instruct teachers and staff as they are evacuating their classrooms and building, they must be watchful for anything that they don’t recognize as being “normal”, i.e. briefcases, bags in unusual places, pipes laying in unusual places. If they don’t observe anything unusual in the classrooms, close the door after the last student is out. (The closed door will indicate to the police that nothing unusual was observed in the classroom.) Do Not Lock The Doors! The principal will evacuate the building, if warranted (1000 feet or more). A search team composed of police officers and staff members will conduct a visual search of the building and report to the principal any items or containers that are unusual or foreign to the normal operation. Do not handle the item under suspicion. The principal will notify the superintendent s office who will immediately notify the proper departments. The principal will be responsible for controlling the use of two-way radios and cell phones during a bomb threat. The principal will be responsible for developing and maintaining a visual search plan (blue print) designed to meet the specific needs of his or her building.
