- Did you place the bomb? Who did? Why?
- Where is it right now?
- What is your address? Your name?
- Call the UGA Police Department immediately at 706-542-2200 to give them the information, describing the caller’s voice, any background noises, and the exact wording of the message.
- Preserve any caller identification information recorded by the telephone.
