Bomb Threat

If you see a suspicious package/object or are alerted to a bomb threat:
- Do not touch or disturb the object.
- Call the UMPD at 413-545-3111 and relay as much information as possible.
- Be prepared to evacuate.
- If told to evacuate, as you leave, look around for anything suspicious to report to the authorities.


In collaboration with UMass Police, the Bomb Threat Call Taker Check List Procedure was developed to offer guidance to those people who may be in the position to receive a bomb threat via telephone.  If a threat is received, either by telephone, email, or other means, always contact UMPD immediately.
