Enterprise Assessments Assessment of Sandia National Laboratories/New Mexico Emergency Management Exercise Program – August 2018
Assessment of the Emergency Management Exercise Program Sandia National Laboratories/New Mexico
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Emergency Management Assessments, within the independent Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA), conducted an assessment of the emergency management exercise program at Sandia National Laboratories/New Mexico (SNL/NM). The overall purpose of the assessment was to assess the effectiveness of the emergency management program by observing and evaluating the full-scale exercise, identifying performance strengths and weaknesses, and conducting limited causal analysis of observed weaknesses. The assessment also included a review of the exercise program and an appraisal of the closure of two previous findings. The SNL/NM emergency management program is currently making the transition from DOE Order 151.1C, Comprehensive Emergency Management System, to DOE Order 151.1D requirements.
