Los Alamos National Bank (LANB) would like to acknowledge the professionalism and dedication to community safety provided by the Los Alamos County first responders, and give thanks for their steadfast community stewardship and oversight.
Tuesday afternoon the Los Alamos Fire Department responded to a call from Los Alamos National Bank regarding a suspicious odor on the third floor of the building.
The fire crew arrived promptly and after inspecting the building, confirmed that there was no fire on the premises. They identified a heating/ventilation system malfunction as the likely cause of the odor. Technicians later confirmed the fire department’s theory and corrected the malfunction.
“Yesterday, I had the opportunity to witness the rapid response of our local fire department first-hand,” LANB CEO John S. Gulas said. “The report of a suspicious scent triggered a call to the Los Alamos Fire Department and within seconds their response team was activated. Not to mention, an off-duty police officer who happened to be near our location at the time, also responded to the call. The officer helped secure the bank lobby while the fire crew thoroughly inspected the building. What stemmed from a moment of uncertainty, turned out to be a true reminder of the strength of our community, and the important work of our first responders to ensure our safety.”
During this season of reflection, the employees of Los Alamos National Bank would like to honor the first responders that serve our country, and the Los Alamos Fire Department, in particular, for their commitment to community well-being. Happy Thanksgiving!
