All bomb threats will be taken seriously and should be recorded on the Bomb Threat Checklist Form provided by Campus Police.
Receiver of the Threat:
If you receive a bomb threat notify Campus Police at extension 4911
Use the bomb threat checklist form to record the exact statement made by the caller. The terminology, expression, and whether male or female are of definite significance, as are any other clues which may be obtained. It is important to know the location of the bomb whether it is inside the building or outside.
An emergency warning "CODE RED" evacuation may be issued, unless otherwise directed.
Campus Police along with the Framingham Fire Department will assess the situation and provide further instructions.
Direct staff and students not to touch or move any suspicious device or object found on the premises, as some may explode with the slightest movement. Avoid cell phone use and turn off two-way radios, as they may detonate a device.
Keep loud noise and movement to a minimum, even when evacuating. Devices may be sensitive to noise or movement. The Framingham Fire Department will be fully in charge and will determine when re-entry is possible.
