RCMP Bomb Threat Procedures

Friday, April 13th, 2007

Here’s a link to bomb threat procedures provided by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).  I particularly like the idea of devising a hand signal to your supervisor that a bomb threat has been received.

“Using a pre-arranged signal, notify your supervisor while the call is still ongoing. Your supervisor should contact the local police service.”

Bomb Threat

Monday, November 20th, 2006

Here’s a message from a member of our weekend Circulation staff about an incident that took place last night.  It was an opportunity for us to brush up on our Bomb Threat and Suspicious Behavior procedures.

Hospital Security stopped by the Circulation Desk, and asked that we be on the lookout for any suspicious behavior, or any patron out of the ordinary. The Emergency Room has received a recent bomb threat. There was no request to alert patrons or evacuate, but rather to keep a lookout for anything/anyone unusual, and call them if such criteria was observed.
