Los Alamos National Laboratory is conducting an emergency preparedness exercise on Wednesday, Aug. 29. It is an exercise only.
LANL 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 in place outside the Los Alamos Medical Center, alerting the public that an exercise is under way.
Laboratory employees who work in facilities near the exercise scenario have been notified. Los Alamos County also has been notified of the emergency exercise.
