Abstract: At the University of Central Florida, Department of Security and Emergency Management staff knew that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was the “go to” site for information on handling bomb threats, so the university immediately turned there to look for video training on how to handle a bomb threat call. Surprisingly, the extensive DHS resources lacked a video component. So UCF partnered with the DHS Office for Bombing Prevention to make one for everyone’s use. And now, it’s become the standard not only for the university, but also for DHS, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and numerous other institutions of higher education around the country.
