Bomb Threat Protocol for Schools

Bomb Threats can cause fear and seriously interrupt the school day. Schools, working with their area First Responders, will learn to develop protocols for responding to bomb threats, unattended packages, and suspicious packages.  Achieve  balance between keeping students & staff safe and minimizing the disruption to the day. 

This action plan is based on best practices from the US Department of Homeland Security and work Gary has done with city and county bomb squads.
