PETERBOROUGH-A bomb threat called into Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC) in Peterborough turned out to be unfounded according to police.
An individual contacted the hospital this morning making the threat. A code black was immediately declared. Police were notified and a perimeter lockdown was initiated.
Patients were still able to access the hospital through the Emergency Department and were being screened prior to entry.
“The safety of our patients and staff is, as always, our number one priority. We ask that all patients and family members delay coming to the hospital,” said officials at PRHC. “We understand how frightening this news will be for all those impacted”
After a complete investigation and full search of the building police determined the threat was unfounded and there was no threat to the public.
