Pi.O (Australia, 1951)


a Bomb threat
will inevitably come as
a shock.
If you recieve one ( Don't let on ! )
Keep the caller talking;
Ask him (or
her!) when the bomb
will explode; where it is;
what it looks like;
And what will c a u s e it to explode;
Ask the caller
their name; And how old they are;
Take particular notice
of their accent:
Israeli-German, Spanish-Russian;
And their tone:
Angry, drunk, calm, excited,.........
If you happen to know
who they are don't let on
Don't blurt-out: "Hey! That you? Bob!"
...just keep 'em talking;
Listen to
background noise: a train-whistle
could be a vital clue.
When the caller
has finished: Don't hang up!
Keep calm; And write
in clear legible script:
and then hand it
to your Supervisor (:He'll know
what to do);
If the ORDER to evacuate
is not given
open all the doors and windows (to lessen
the effect on property damage)
and then go back
to your desk and keep
