CONDUCTING A SEARCH

  1. If the caller states or implies that a bomb is in a particular suite, be aware that the individuals working in that suite will be called upon to conduct a search of their area. These individuals are the best people to determine whether something doesn’t belong or if something has been moved, or is out of place.
  2. Each tenant should develop and maintain a search plan for their office suite. There should be two Searchers per team. If the suite is large, divide it into quadrants and permanently assign searchers to a specific quadrant.
  3. Conduct your search by assessing the room utilizing the following method:
    • search from floor to waist level
    • then search from waist to chin level
    • then search from chin to ceiling level
  4. Keep a written record of the rooms searched and the results.
  5. If a device is found, do not touch it:
    • ISOLATION – isolate the object
    • EVACUATION – evacuate the area
    • NOTIFICATION - notify the authorities
  6. If the caller states or implies that a bomb is in a common area of the building, the property team will conduct the search.
  7. The local authorities generally respond to the building to simply take a report if an unidentified or suspicious article is not found. In turn, if an article is found, the bomb squad is generally called by the police department.
