CRANFORD — Union County College’s Public Safety issued an “all clear” at 3:30 p.m. after sweeping the Cranford campus in response to a nebulous threat received earlier today, officials said.
According to Stephen D. Nacco, vice president & executive assistant to the president, Union County College received “a vague phone threat” around 2 p.m. today.
The college “took appropriate action for a Level I threat” in concert with local and county law enforcement, according to Nacco.
The college’s emergency management plan defines a Level I threat as “a hoax caller” with less than a two percent probability of the threat being real.
Classes and programs continued as scheduled while sweeps were conducted through Cranford Campus buildings, Nacco said.
