Be sure to train all personnel — ATF Checklist for Bomb Threats

Using checklists during a bomb threat is prudent and a best practice.  Organizations should remember to train all personnel who may take a bomb threat or be in a position to see suspicious packages.  Secretaries, maintenance and security personnel are important front-line employees, who need such training. Be sure to instruct all personnel to never touch any suspicious package and to report such packages immediately according to your standard operating procedures.
