Bomb Threats

It is Lili’s Early Learning policy to ensure that if there is a bomb threat or bomb located in the centre all staff members and children evacuate the building following the ‘Emergency Evacuation Plan’.

What to do
1. If possible, inform another staff member of the situation.
2. Dial 000 and advise that a bomb threat is taking place.
• Be calm and listen carefully.
• Do not interrupt or antagonize the caller.
• Try to develop a rapport by being sympathetic.
• Take notes.

Questions to ask the person reporting the threat:
1. When is the bomb going to explode?
2. Where is the bomb right now?
3. What kind of bomb is it?
4. What does it look like?
5. What will cause it to explode?
6. Did you place the bomb?
7. Why did you (or whoever) place the bomb?
8. Where are you calling from?
9. What is your name, address and telephone number?
