PASSENGERS AWARENESS REGARDING BOMB THREAT

We are aware that, bombing incidents can occur at various Railway Stations.The basic aim is to cause injuries, create confusion and lower the morale of people. The availability of Bomb Disposal Squad in a particular area may ease out the problems as far as the disposal of bomb is concerned. However, the actions of neutralization and disposal of bomb can take place once the B.D.Squad has been summoned and can reach the location well in time. In most of the cases, the B.D.Squad gets information regarding the bomb threat after the bomb blast has already been taken place. In most of the cases, if the information is received in time by the authorities the blasts can be averted and damage to life and property can be reduced. Hence, the task of giving the timely information regarding presence of any suspicious object rests on the persons present on the Railway premises.

It is imperative that, general awareness is generated in the mind of the travelling public regarding noticing and reporting of suspicious object to RPF/GRP/Railway employees for quick action.

It is also important that, mere informing the presence of any suspicious object by the common man is not adequate. The foremost task would be to ensure that, the immediate vicinity of the object is vacated by the people so as to reduce the loss of innocent lives in the eventuality of explosion occuring before B.D.Squad can reach the spot. Instead Police/GRP/RPF to come and do the task, the people available in the area should carryout the following on noticing the suspected object :-

(A).By cleaning/evacuating the area.
(B).By screening the object by putting sand bags around it.
(C).Ensure that, no one touches or approaches the suspected object.
DO's
ü  Always keep an eye for suspicious object.
ü  Never handle an unclaimed object.
ü  Notice for surrounding for anything out of place.
ü  Evacuate all the men immediately to a safe distance.
ü  Open all doors and windows.
ü  Remove all valuable and unstable articles like fuel etc.
ü  Place sand bags around the suspected articles.
The height of sand bags should be three times from the height of suspected object.
ü  Inform the Bomb Disposal Squad.
ü  Inform the Fire Brigade, Hospital and Ambulance.
DONT's
ü  Do not spread rumer.
ü  Do not touch, disturb and approach the suspected object.
ü  Do not try to submerge the suspicious object in water.
ü  Do not try to open or puncture the suspecious object.
ü  Do not try to be a Dead Hero.
