Emergency Preparedness Capability Assessment at the Y-12 National Security Complex

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Emergency Management Assessments, within the independent Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA), assessed the adequacy of maintaining emergency preparedness capabilities at the Y-12 National Security Complex (Y-12). This assessment is part of a targeted review of emergency preparedness for high-hazard facilities within the DOE/National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). This targeted review evaluated the processes for identifying and maintaining emergency response capabilities in a state of readiness to protect the health and safety of workers and the public for any incident, whether natural or manmade, that requires response action beyond normal operations.
