Bomb Threats

UVA Guidance on Bomb Threats

It is important to compile as much information as possible. Please DO NOT attempt to notify or evacuate an entire building as this could consume valuable time that would be better used to gather important information.

Please keep in mind that the vast majority of bomb threats are false and are primarily intended to elicit a response from the building occupants. Most bomb threats are transmitted over the telephone; the following instructions are provided with that assumption.  Further Instructions
