Los Alamos National Laboratory is conducting an emergency-preparedness exercise Thursday, March 21 … it is only an exercise.
The Lab routinely conducts emergency exercises to test the preparedness of emergency response and other LANL personnel who would respond to an actual emergency.
The majority of the exercise is on LANL property and shouldn’t affect the public.
Signs will be placed outside the Los Alamos Medical Center alerting the public that an exercise is under way.
LANL employees in affected facilities will be notified before the exercise begins and when it is completed.
Los Alamos County also has been notified of the emergency exercise.
Emergency vehicles participating in the exercise may use flashing lights but no sirens.
