UTPB Recommending Modifications to Emergency Plan

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

ODESSA - UTPB is reviewing and modifying it's emergency notification system following a bomb threat on April 24th.

A Falcon Alert emergency notification was activated to students and campus personnel identifying a potential emergency.

It was followed by subsequent alerts for the evacuation of the Mesa Building, Gym, Library, Student Activities Building and the Science and Technology Building. These alerts were in response to a report of an unattended briefcase on the second floor of the Mesa Building.

The UTPB Emergency Management Committee met and has reviewed the emergency response taken pertaining to this incident.

While the committee believes that the response was effective, it is in the process of developing recommendations for modifications to the emergency plan that will be designed to improve future crisis response.
