Bomb Threat Response: An Interactive Planning Tool for Schools. [CD-ROM]
US Department of Justice (NJ3)
The content of this CD-ROM was developed by the Bureau of Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Department of Justice and the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, U.S. Department of Education. The intended use of this software is for planning by schools and school districts to respond to bomb threats. This interactive tool assists school districts, school administrators, and emergency responders in planning an effective bomb threat response protocol in schools. The tool comprehensively and concretely walks through the planning and response process and provides customizable implementation resources. This guide outlines best practices in bomb threat response. However, because every school is different and should have a plan written specifically for that school, administrators and governance bodies must determine what policies and practices are best for their school(s).
