The LBW Community College MacArthur Campus in Opp, Alabama, received a bomb threat simultaneously with many other colleges in the Alabama Community College System Wednesday, July 27.

MacArthur Campus was evacuated, and all buildings were cleared.

Due to the nature of the call and out of an abundance of caution, the Andalusia Campus was also evacuated, and all buildings were cleared.

ACCS has released that authorities at Alabama’s community colleges are working closely with law enforcement on a state level and within each community to ensure the safety of residents across our facilities after alleged bomb threats were made at multiple institutions. No threats have been deemed credible at this time.

As always, safety is our number one priority at LBW, and I’m extremely proud of our faculty, staff, students, and visitors for their cooperation and patience. Thank you to our campus police and all local responders for their immediate response and continuous communication. Classes and all activities have resumed.
