Emergency Preparedness means being ready. It takes an effort by all of us to create and sustain an effective emergency preparedness system. You are your own best first responder. Please use this site as a resource to better understand emergency preparedness at the university, and how you can become part of and contribute to the preparedness community.
False Alarm or Report: Occasionally, false bomb threats (and other similar false reports) are called in at colleges and universities. Tex. Penal Code § 42.06 provides that “a person commits an offense if he knowingly initiates, communicates or circulates a report of a present, past, or future bombing, fire, offense, or other emergency that he knows is false or baseless.” A false report made to a college or university is a state jail felony. See the complete Tex. Penal Code § 42.06.
Bomb Threat Guidance Brochure (PDF), developed by the Office of Bombing Prevention (OBP) as a quick reference guide to help stakeholders gain a better understanding in a bomb threat situation.
Bomb Threat Checklist (PDF) is a useful form for collecting information about the person calling in the bomb threat.
