Sandia National Laboratories Emergency Action Levels and Associated Consequence Analyses [HIAR-SNL-2011-08-25]

Personnel from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), Office of Safety and Emergency Management Evaluations, met with Sandia Site Office and Sandia National Laboratories/New Mexico (SNL/NM) emergency management personnel to review the actions taken to resolve 2009 Independent Oversight findings pertaining to the emergency action levels (EALs) and the associated emergency planning hazards assessment (EPHA) consequence analyses. This review was to validate that SNL has made appropriate revisions to their EALs and that the incident commanders (ICs) can categorize and classify an emergency event in a timely manner using the EALs.
