UPDATE: Calhoun Community College evacuates all buildings due to bomb threat

UPDATE: Calhoun Community College police assisted by the Decatur and Huntsville Police departments have cleared all buildings on all Calhoun campuses. Students and employees may return to all buildings and campuses.

PREVIOUS STORY: Calhoun Community College received a bomb threat and immediately evacuated all buildings on its Huntsville and Decatur campuses as well as the Alabama Center for the Arts in downtown Decatur. Buildings will remain closed until further notice.

Employees will be notified via campus alerts, which are sent to employee’s cell and home telephones as well as via email when it is safe to return to campus.

Multiple Alabama colleges reportedly received bomb threats on Wednesday, including UAH.

Athens State has not received a bomb threat and did not evacuate its campus in Athens, an official there said. Athens State shares the Alabama Center for the Arts campus with Calhoun.

Alabama Community College System spokesperson Ebony Horton released this statement: “Authorities at Alabama’s community colleges are working closely with law enforcement on a state level and within each community to ensure the safety of residents across our facilities after alleged bomb threats were made at multiple institutions. While no threats have been deemed credible at this time, some buildings have — per protocol — been evacuated and access restricted to some campuses. Residents, including students, faculty and staff, are encouraged to not visit any of the colleges’ facilities until further notice by the colleges.”
