Bomb Threat

Telephone Threat

When a bomb threat is made over the telephone, obtain the following information from the caller:

  • Exact location of the device
  • Time set for explosion
  • Description of the device
  • Reason the caller has placed the bomb
  • Exact words used by the caller

Keep this information as confidential as possible.

After notifying the Police Department by calling 911, immediately notify the Management Office at 615.321.5456.

Once the Management Office has been notified of a bomb threat, they will contact local police. It is our policy to then notify tenants. If local police deem the building should be evacuated then we will take immediate steps to evacuate all tenants and visitors.

In the event that you are asked to evacuate the building, please move away from the building so as to allow unfettered access to emergency personnel. Do not reenter the building until the Management Office, the Police or the Fire Department have given clearance.
