Suspicious Object Checklist
In the event that you or someone at your facility determines a device or object to be suspicious, please note the following:
- CALL POLICE. (But do not use a cell phone, cordless phone, walkie-talkie, or any other device as bombs may be triggered by radio signals.)
- LEAVE IT ALONE. (Do Not Move It Or Touch It)
- ESTABLISH OWNERSHIP IF POSSIBLE. (Ask people in the immediate vicinity if they own it)
- EVACUATE, IF APPROPRIATE. (If you decide it may be an explosive device, evacuate the vicinity. Rule of thumb: after you have evacuated, if you can see the device, you are too close.)
Remember: Your ADL Regional Office is a resource available to you.
