What it's like to respond to a bomb threat

Joan Goodchild | Dec. 22, 2010
Over 98 per cent of all bomb threats are falseand very few actual bomb incidents, where someone successfully plants an explosive device, are preceded by threats.

How do you avoid panic? In the real-life incidents I have been involved in, I have never had anything that even remotely bordered on panic. Actually, the opposite is true. Most of the time the real problem is getting people to take the evacuation order seriously. Getting people to actually leave the building or, for that matter, getting them to stay out of the building if a search is under way, is more of a problem than panic.
