CNG Emergency Reaction Plan: Bomb Threat / Intruder

All threats have to be considered real.

If a bomb threat is received by phone, the individual receiving the call should:

  • Stay calm
  • Listen carefully
  • Remain polite without exhibiting a fear reaction
  • Begin documenting the call.
  • Try to get another staff person to let the principal/director/designee know what is happening with this phone call.
  • Once the caller has disconnected the line, the Director should be notified. It is imperative to keep the call confidential to avoid residual inappropriate responses and panic actions.
  • The Director will decide if the ICS needs to be activated.

  • Minimize movement in halls and classrooms to a minimum.
