NA 40/80 Office of Emergency Response

NA 40/80 Office of Emergency Response

The Department of Energy has adopted an enterprise-wide approach to strengthening its preparedness for and its capability to respond to a broad spectrum of potential emergencies, including those resulting from natural phenomena (e.g., adverse weather, earthquakes) and from human actions (e.g., accidents, sabotage, terrorism).
To help support the Department’s new approach, NNSA has recently reorganized the Office of Emergency Operations (NA-40) and the Office of Counterterrorism and Counterproliferation (NA-80). NA-40 will now focus its efforts primarily on building the capacity to respond to all hazards, including a reinvigorated and a reintegrated emergency management governance structure and a new consolidated emergency operations center.
MELE Associates staff will provide technical and management support to aid NNSA in continuing to devote priority attention to its unique and continuing responsibility for field deployable nuclear and radiological response assets, several functions previously performed within NA-40 which have been placed under NA-80.
