FHSU Bomb Threat Checklist

Stay calm and complete the following checklist as much as the situation and time allow. Remember, stay calm and alert to how the caller speaks and background noises. Try to keep the caller talking as long as possible.

Without alerting the caller, attract the attention of a co-worker if one is present and have the co-worker call the University Police at 5304; after hours call 9-911.

COMPLETE THE CHECKLIST AND DO NOTHING UNTIL THE POLICE ARRIVE!
