ROME – Rome Memorial Hospital enacted its emergency preparedness plan Friday afternoon due to a security threat, according to Scott Gwilt, public relations specialist for the hospital.
Gwilt says the hospital enacted its emergency preparedness plan and implemented security protocols to screen all visitors entering the building out of an abundance of caution, because of a credible security threat from an individual.
As of 3:55 p.m., Gwilt says law enforcement determined the individual involved is no longer a threat and normal operations have resumed.
The Rome Police Department and the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office both assisted the hospital with the situation.
