    • A.

      Hang up the phone

    • B.

      Remain calm and keep the caller on the line

    • D.

      Ask the caller if they would like an appointment for behavioral health

    Correct Answer
    B. Remain calm and keep the caller on the line
    Explanation
    Remaining calm and keeping the caller on the line is the correct answer because it allows the person receiving the call to gather as much information as possible from the caller. This information can be crucial for the authorities to assess the threat and take appropriate actions. Panicking or hanging up the phone would not provide any useful information, and handing the phone to a co-worker may cause unnecessary confusion and delay in responding to the situation. Asking the caller about an appointment for behavioral health is not relevant to the immediate threat and should be addressed after ensuring the safety of everyone in the building.
