Lab to hold full-scale homeland security drill

-A A +A

Los Alamos National Laboratory Emergency response personnel, Protective Force guards, federal officials, the Los Alamos Police Department and the FBI will participate in an extensive, full scale homeland security emergency exercise for two full days Saturday and Sunday.
The exercise will take place within a small section of Technical Area 3, the laboratory’s main administrative area. All other parts of the laboratory will be unaffected.
On Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. vehicle access to the laboratory through the east and west Jemez Road access control points will be limited to DOE badge holders only.
Vehicles can bypass the TA-3 exercise area by using West Road. There will be no access restrictions on Sunday.
There will be limited period of time on Saturday when there will be no access through the Vehicle Access Portals on East and West Jemez Roads. During that period of time, which could be up to two hours, all vehicles will asked to use West Road to bypass the TA-3 area of Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The field simulation of the exercise will last a short period of time on Saturday, and will imitate a real-life scenario involving a hostile event.
Loud noises from simulated explosives and the sound of weapons using blank ammunition may be heard in the surrounding area.
