The building was not evacuated, but employees were notified and given the opportunity to leave for the remainder of the workday.

The Skirvin Hilton Hotel, located next door from the Chase Building, remained open.

After following proper protocol, officials determined the package to be safe.

It was later learned the package, which an x-ray scan concluded was filled with papers, was addressed to someone who did not work inside the building.
