SIAST evacuates Palliser campus after bomb threat

September 18, 2014

The Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology was forced to evacuate its Palliser campus in Moose Jaw on Tuesday after receiving a bomb threat, the second threat in 3 weeks. The school was evacuated at around 9 am, allowing local police to conduct a sweep of the campus and grounds before declaring there was no immediate threat. The campus reopened at noon. Police are not revealing the manner of the second threat, but do believe it is connected to a threat received August 25, which was reportedly a handwritten letter. Sgt Cliff Froehlich of the Moose Jaw Police Service noted the rare occurrence of bomb threats in Moose Jaw and suggested that the threats may involve someone from outside the city. "We're concerned about these. It upsets the day and the administration and the students at SIAST," said Froehlich. Regina Leader-Post | SIAST campus updates | Global News (1) | Global News (2)
