University personnel or students receiving telephoned threats should get as much information as possible from the caller and call 911 immediately. If possible, get the attention of another staff member or student and have them call 911 while you are still on the line with the caller, keeping the caller on the line. Listen for background noise and other sounds that might be important for further investigation. Bomb threats received through the mail or other means must be reported immediately. The Sewanee police will assess the threat and advise occupants if it is necessary to evacuate the building to a safe area (at least 500 feet from the building or other buildings and/or automobiles). Stay clear from emergency responders’ staging area.
