Emergency Management Exercise 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 emergency management program at the Y-12 National Security Complex (Y-12). The assessment appraised the Y-12 emergency management program by evaluating its effectiveness in responding to emergencies. This assessment is part of a series of assessments of emergency management programs at DOE complex sites and was conducted in accordance with the Plan for the Office of Enterprise Assessments Assessment of the Emergency Management Program at the Y-12 National Security Complex, May – August 2019. The assessment included both the June 2019 full-participation exercise (FPE) and July 2019 functional exercise (FE), and considered the performance of the emergency response organization (ERO) at key decision-making venues using scenarios that postulated potential offsite consequences.
