I'm looking for any departments that have a SOG or SOP on the handling of bomb threats. We do not have anyone trained in explosives (nor wants any). I'm wanting to locate something that says we put out the fires and pick up the pieces afterwards, not that we go in and search and clear the building.
We run an engine and have a tanker on stand-by at the station. No lights or sirens. No radio communications once on scene and we usually stage 2 or 3 blocks away from the suspected "bomb". PD does the rest. They have a bomb sniffing dog that they call in. Once it is clear, PD lets us head back to station.
