I think you got that wrong, I just watched the video of the person talking and he said at the beginning they were saying on the loud speaker that the
increased security is just a drill.

I used to work at a building that received bomb threats on a number of ocassions. The rule was if there was a bomb threat the building had to be
evacuated and the police came in with the bomb sniffing dogs and checked the whole place out.
I remember once our director telling us to stay at our seats when we got a bomb threat, which in a way might have made sense, because they were always
false. The place was never bombed. Nevertheless I stood up and said I wasn't going to risk my life so he could get better productivity. He
obviously was not thinking of any of our lives, but his quota. He told me to sit back down and continue working. I reminded him of the company
policy and that it was mandatory to evacuate the building. I wasn't being insubordinate, and he knew it. I thought it was a pretty scummy thing of
him to do from the time he did it, down to this day.
I guess the morale of the story is, even if the threat is fake, it is not worth risking a person's life. If there was a threat made, the onlyl
logical thing to do would be to evacuate. And stop the marathon.
If you disagree, please see what happened.
