As of this writing, we are aware of 32 schools in Massachusetts that have received robo-call bomb threats today. The response to the threats is being handled, variously, by local police and fire departments, the State Police Bomb Squad, State Police patrols and K9 units, and the office of the State Fire Marshal. The threats are being tracked by State Police at the Commonwealth Fusion Center. For each threat, a risk assessment is performed and authorities are responding accordingly. No hazardous devices have been found at any sites as of this time. From MA State Police.
