Dallas VA Medical Center Bomb Threat – Evacuations

 In Breaking News, Domestic, Veterans

A bomb threat at the North Texas VA in Dallas, Texas, forced precautionary evacuations on Monday afternoon, according to Dallas Local News Media. The Hazmat team and bomb squad arrived for what is being described as a “suspicious” device. No details on the device have been released at this time. Dallas police assisted the hospital with evacuations.

What appeared to be a “credible” threat brought fire trucks and hazmat vehicles as patients and staff were evacuated. Clinics, lab, and parts of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors were closed.

Some patients were left in the rooms and secured there. Some staff and other patients were outside the building. “Workers were asked to go home” – it is unclear which workers were told to go home, or what the status of the incident is regarding that issue. One KRLD reporter stated that the director of the hospital said that they were still dealing with “something” even though it appeared some people were being allowed back into the building.
