Police have given the “all clear” at Falls Church City Hall after the building was evacuated due to a bomb threat early Thursday evening. The building has been reopened when no explosive devices were found after a sweep of the campus with City of Falls Church Police’s K9 bomb sniffing dog, Fitz, the City announced.
City Communications Director Susan Finarelli told the News-Press the threat was called in Thursday evening. The City’s emergency alert system first sent out an alert at 5:23 p.m. today with news of the threat.
The planned meeting on the City Hall renovation project is still on as scheduled for 7:30 p.m. tonight. The City says attendees should use the police entrance at G2 to enter the building.
