Superintendent, Police Applaud Emergency Response

(Jon Green/TSM)

While a bomb threat at Cheyenne’s Triumph High School on Wednesday turned out to be a hoax, both Laramie County School District #1 Superintendent Mark Stock and a spokesman for the Cheyenne Police Department say the response to the threat was executed quickly and according to plan.

Stock says the person who answered the phone call warning of the bomb followed emergency procedure by first trying to get more information about the threat and then by immediately calling 911 to report the threat. Stock says police were on the scene almost immediately.

He says the evacuation of the school and the ensuing search for the alleged bomb were conducted smoothly and in an organized fashion. Stock also says he was pleased that the emergency response team was able to quickly evaluate the situation and clear the school for students to return. Stock evaluated the overall response as going “really well”.

His sentiments were echoed by Cheyenne Police spokesman Officer Dan Long, who cited the rapid response time and smooth implementation of the ensuing search as positives. Long also said police are asking anyone who may have information about the bomb threat caller to contact the department or the Silent Witness tip line at 638-tips.
