LANL exercise

Los Alamos National Laboratory is conducting an emergency-preparedness exercise Thursday. 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. During the exercise, employees should be aware of possible increased emergency vehicle traffic on some LANL roads in the Technical Area 3 area. “Exercise in Progress” signs will be placed in affected areas. Those with any questions should contact Monique Sanchez of the Emergency Operations Division at 665-7547.


The public is invited to a reception Friday wishing Police Chief Wayne Torpy farewell as he retires from county service. The reception will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Justice Center.
