Virginia Tech to host Mar. 22 seminar on 'Nuclear Emergency Response Training'

from IAEM

The Virginia Tech Department of Science, Technology and Society will host a seminar on “Nuclear Emergency Response Training: Preparing for an Event You Hope Never Happens” on Mar. 22, 2018, 12:00 p.m. EDT, at the Virginia Tech Research Center, Arlington, Virginia. The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) trains and equips a suite of specialized teams to deal with the broad range of radiological emergencies. These low-probability, high-consequence events pose unique challenges for responders. Effective responses require extensive preparedness gained from robust training, high-pressure exercises, and real-world operations that test the technical skills, coordination, and communication among different teams and organizations. The team of presenters, who all work within the DOE/NNSA, include Travis Bertram, program manager for operations and exercises; Dr. Nathan Hoteling, scientist at the Remote Sensing Laboratory where he supports a number of DOE's emergency response teams; and Dr. Daniel Blumenthal, manager of the consequence management programs, Office of Nuclear Incident Response.
