All employees were evacuated and later returned to work, and with 5 buildings this sounds like a substantial amount of employees to get out of the buildings.  Nothing was found and all returned back to work.  The University of Tennessee had also received bomb threats this week.  BD  image

Oct 24, 2009 (Chattanooga Times Free Press - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- A second telephoned bomb threat in Chattanooga in three days forced the evacuation of BlueCross BlueShield's downtown location early Friday afternoon.

BlueCross' Cameron Hill location was evacuated about 12:15 p.m. after the company received a call that bombs had been placed in the campus' five buildings.
Chattanooga police conducted sweeps of the buildings and found nothing, said Capt. Terri Whiteside, spokeswoman for the Chattanooga Fire Department.

Officials set up a call station in the main lobby that allowed employees to report any suspicious or unusual behavior on Friday, Capt. Whiteside said.

BlueCross allowed employees to return after the situation was assessed, said BlueCross spokeswoman Mary Thompson in an e-mailed statement.
