Covered in this Course

The Bomb Threats and Suspicious Packages Training course is broken down into 2 sections.

1) Identifying Risk

In Bomb Threats we look at what you should do if you receive a telephoned bomb threat. We explain what information should be collected and extra details that will be helpful to the police.

In Suspicious Packages we give you an idea of the tell-tale signs that could mean a package contains an explosive device or has other dangerous contents inside and explain what to do if you come across a suspicious package in your workplace.

2) Evacuation and Searches

Here we look at evacuation – what you should do and where you should go. We also consider whether evacuation is the right course of action. Sometimes it’s safer to remain inside the building.

We also look at searches, who should do them and how, and the part you may play in this.

Evacuation and searches are a vital part of keeping people safe during a bomb threat
