Hazardous Material Emergencies
Workplace violence may take the form of personal assault and may or may not include weapons. You might hear the sound of gunfire, scuffling, or other employees yelling.
Bomb threats may be received in many ways. The most common method is by phone. If you receive a bomb threat by phone, attempt to keep the person on the phone as long as possible and try to obtain the following information using the Bomb Threat Checklist.
If you are instructed to evacuate a building take your purse, backpacks or brief cases with you. As you exit, survey the area for suspicious or unusual packages, boxes, or book bags. You are more familiar with what is normal for your building than first responders. Report suspicious items and/ or persons to the WKU Police Department at 911 or 270-745-2548.
