“It’s important, although we haven’t traditionally seen a large number of bomb threats in healthcare in the US, it happens but it’s not a huge issue,” Warren said. “That being said it’s a topic that needs to be addressed, along with suspicious packages, indicators of terrorism planning activity. DHS has a lot of that information our there, the free online training suspicious activity reporting (SAR) initiative is already out there, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.”
