In brief: Bomb threat
Code black is going to have different meanings, depending on where you are.
In some cases, it means that someone has died. Othertimes it can mean a bomb threat, or even someone making a threat against themselves. A lot of places use colors to specify to staff that there is something happening without causing a riot or a commotion. To find more information click here: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/h.
