Authorities say Thursday's state-wide bomb threat not credible

Thursday's state-wide threat to state facilities and schools is thought to be a hoax by authorities, as there have been no findings that indicate a credible threat.   

School districts, community colleges and law enforcement were notified as Wyoming Homeland Security looked into the threat for feasibility and credibility, so as to implement any procedures if necessary.

Goshen County schools implemented a lockout, which provided parents the opportunity to pick their child up if they chose.  School resumed as usual this morning.   

Eastern Wyoming College also took precautions and had local law enforcement check both the Torrington and Douglas campuses and there did not appear to be an danger.  It was believed by college officials that the threat did not appear to be credible, but took these measures for the safety of students and staff.  Both the Torrington and Douglas campuses are open with normal operations today and any changes or further updates will be posted on the EWC website and social media pages.
