A bomb threat prompted North Island College to close the doors to its Comox Valley and Campbell River campuses today (Friday).

“The RCMP notified us this morning of a potential bomb threat that could potentially affect both the campuses, and we’ve been working with the RCMP since to ensure everyone’s safety,” says college public relations officer Beth Turner.

“We opted to take the absolute, most extreme, precautionary measures that we could take, which has involved closing down both the Comox Valley and the Campbell River campuses for the remainder of the day.”

Exams that were scheduled for today have been rescheduled. For more information, visit NIC’s website at www.nic.bc.ca.

Turner adds the college is expected to open Monday morning as normal, but notes further information will be posted on the college website later today.
