In the daily life of a security guard, emergency situations are not
always at hand but when they do occur, these officers follow certain procedures to handle such situations.
For example, in case of a bomb threat and the first person to respond is the security officer then understand
that there are protocols to follow. If you are interested to know these protocols, read below.
In this video, you will be given an idea about what to do in case such
threat is received. The first thing you must do is to stay calm if you have received the threat (if you are the
security guard). This means that you have to remain in control. Showing your own anxiety will only alarm
customers or people within the area of your assignment. If the bomb threat is proven then this time you need to
work on the next step.
According to the video the next thing you need to do is to know the type
of package that the said bomb is placed. Keep in mind that you are not trained to disarm a bomb so it is best
that you do not handle or touch the said package. If you happen to receive a call from the bomb threat caller,
make sure that you keep him on the line as long as possible. This video will teach you what you need to do in
case you are the one responsible for taking the call. By doing so, you will be able to act accordingly. If you
can obtain detailed information of the bomb then it can also help. This video will also teach you what questions
to ask to get details from this threat.
Responding to threats can be dangerous at times
but if it keeps the public safe, security officers will do it. They are the first ones to respond before
authorities arrive and so it is important that they know what to do. If you plan to work as a guard, this video
will give you an idea on how to handle bomb threats. This is a good way to be informed ahead. For more
