Ft. Riley Bomb Threat Clears Hospital

Irwin Army Community Hospital at Fort Riley was evacuated late Tuesday morning after officials at the clinic received a bomb threat. In addition to the IACH, Col. Jeffrey Johnson ordered the Combined Troop Medical Clinic, and the Soldier Readiness Processing Center emptied.

Emergency personnel searched the facility and grounds and cleared the area shortly after noon. All three facilities have resumed normal operations.

Patients are asked to call 239-DOCS to verify the status of their appointments or to reschedule their appointments.

Investigators from Fort Riley's Military Police have not yet determined the source of the call and the incident remains under investigation.
