    3. What does the bomb look like?
    4. What kind of bomb is it?
    5. What is your name?
  • Contact Security immediately.
  • Security Officers will be dispatched immediately to the scene.
  • The Great Barrington Police and Fire departments will be called to assess/investigate the threat.
  • The appropriate College authority along with the Security department will determine the course of action to be taken which may or may not include partial or complete evacuation of campus.
