Code Black

The purpose of a Code Black is to identify an actual bomb threat or a suspicious/unexpected letter or parcel. If a bomb threat is present or a suspicious or unexpected letter or parcel is identified, immediate action is taken to maintain safety; assess the threat; isolate the affected area and ensure appropriate local authorities are involved to eliminate any potential danger.

A suspicious package could include:

  • Fake return address
  • Misspelled words
  • Rigid or bulky
  • Crystallization on wrapping
  • No return address
  • Strange odour

If you identify a bomb threat or a suspicious or unexpected letter or parcel, dial (613) 969-7400, ext. 5999 immediately and state your name, location and describe the emergency.
