OAK RIDGE, Tennessee—Emergency response personnel from the National Nuclear Security Administration and Consolidated Nuclear Security, along with federal, state and local emergency management personnel, will conduct an emergency management exercise June 8 in and around the Y-12 National Security Complex.

During this exercise, people in the vicinity of the Y-12 NSC may observe personnel simulating response activities and performing environmental monitoring or sampling, but these offsite activities are part of the exercise.

This event is part of emergency management exercises conducted on a regular basis by the U.S. Department of Energy facilities in Oak Ridge. These exercises test the ability of emergency personnel to respond quickly and effectively to emergency situations, and ensure that the public, Y-12 employees and the environment would be protected in the event of an actual emergency at the Oak Ridge Reservation.
