You may think that the idea of having a form to detail a phoned in bomb threat is humorous, but you'd be wrong.
I work for a gov't agancy (State gov't), in a call-center, and we have
received bomb threats, by phone, on numerous occasions.
Bear in mind that all calls made to our "customer service" number are routed to a central call center; not, as most callers (including potential
bombers/terrorists) might think, to somewhere in the building about to be blown. Although our phones are equipped with caller-ID, and although we are
able to request the immediate dispatch of local law enforcement authorities to an identified site, it is extremely useful to record all available
information about a potentially dangerous (or Stupid) individual.
Actually, I'd like to thank you for posting a link to that form; I intend to copy, print and submit it for adoption at my agency. It's far mor
detailed, and thus useful, than the one we currently employ.
