 The National Nuclear Security Administration, a semi-autonomous agency within the U.S. Department of Energy, has released photographs and video of its Consequence Management Response Teams deploying from Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada, to assist Japanese efforts in the response to the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
Nuclear emergency response personnel and more than 17,000 pounds of hi-tech equipment are being sent to Japan as part of the Department of Energy and National Nuclear Security Administrationís effort to assist Japanese personnel with nuclear issues.
On Wednesday, 33 experts from NNSA and the Department of Energy arrived in Japan and have been deployed to U.S. consulates and military installations in Japan.
These teams have the skills, expertise and equipment to help assess, survey, monitor and sample areas for radiation. 
They include smaller groups that could be sent out to gather technical information in the area. The 33 team members joined another six DOE personnel already in Japan.
NNSA spokesperson Damien LaVera said he did not think anybody from the Los Alamos National Laboratory was sent to Japan.
Officials at LANL referred all inquiries about Japan to the NNSA office in Washington.
