Bomb or Biological Threat
Since most threats are received by telephone – document as
many details as possible, including any Caller ID number displayed.
Immediately call Campus Police at extension 5911 or at (815)
836-5911 and provide them with as much information as possible from
the bomb-threat call. Conduct a quick visual search of your area
for any unusual or unfamiliar items. Do not handle, move, or touch
suspicious items. Report
any findings to Campus Police and await further instruction.
A biological attack can manifest itself in a number of ways over a long
period of time.
If you suspect the presence of a biological or chemical agent,
avoid inhalation by covering
your mouth and nose with any
piece of cloth.
Distance yourself from the
agent by moving away and utilizing barriers.
- In the event of exposure, immediately
at ext. 5911 or (815) 836-5911 or 911.
