Pantex to Conduct Emergency Exercise

  • Posted: Thursday, April 12, 2018, 8:01 am

Pantex Plant’s Emergency Management Department will conduct a site-wide Full-Participation Emergency Exercise on April 17. You may observe response personnel simulating response activities as part of the exercise. Do not be alarmed if you see some of this activity. Due to the scenario, a portion of Pantex may close during parts of the exercise. Please avoid the exercise areas as they are announced. For this exercise, plant personnel will be expected to take the announced protective actions. This is a large-scale exercise, so please limit calls to the OC. Do not call the OC to ask if you are participating.

Emergency exercises test the ability of emergency personnel to respond quickly and effectively to emergency situations and ensure the public, Pantex employees, and the environment would be protected in the event of an actual emergency. If you observe suspicious activity before or after April 17, please report your observations to 477-5000.
