A Bomb Threat at Galion Middle School?

I just saw an article on Crawford Source about the Galion Middle School being evacuated today for a bomb threat. I wanted to share the info here, but be sure to visit Crawford Source to check out the original story for more details.

Safety First

According to the article, the Superintendent of Galion Schools, Mr. Grubbs, notified parents that the students and staff members from the Middle School are all safe at the High School.

Don't Go Get in the Way

Everyone is asked to stay away while the police investigate the threat, and updates will be sent out to families as soon as information is available.

Bomb Threats Seem to Come in Waves

Have you ever noticed how when one school gets a bomb threat, it seems like schools all over the state get them shortly afterwards?

I wanted to put together a brief summary of the Department of Homeland Security's advice on what to do if you receive a bomb threat because, it's always good to have a refresher on what to do.

What to Do if You Receive a Bomb Threat

  • Stay Calm - freaking out may feel like the natural thing to do, but it isn't going to help anyone and could even put people in more danger.
  • Call 911 or notify your supervisor - the DHS actually put notify your supervisor above calling 911, but decide based on your organization's policy, I guess.
  • On the Phone: If the threat is called in, keep the line open - even if the caller hangs up, don't hang up your end of the call.
    • Keep the person talking as long as possible.
    • Pass a note to a colleague or use a cell phone to dial 911 while the person is still on the line. 
    • Write down any details you can about what the caller making the threat says and details about their voice.
    • If possible, record the call. If your organization's phone system doesn't make recordings, you may be able to capture the caller's voice in your cell phone by holding it close to the earpiece of a landline phone.
    • Other things to note, if possible, are caller ID numbers and background noises coming through the line.

Above all: stay calm, get help, and get yourself and everyone else out of the danger zone as quickly and peacefully as possible.
