Spring Rise in School Bomb Threats a Good Reason to Review Bomb Threat Protocols

Many schools receive bomb threats each spring disrupting classes and costing school and public safety agencies thousands of dollars. Bomb threats also create danger and fear in a variety of ways.

Periodically re-evaluating school bomb threat procedures to see if changes are needed and to make sure that school officials are prepared to respond quickly and appropriately to threats that are received can be a good idea. School bomb threats are a recurring school safety issue in many schools each year.
