On Thursday, July 18 at 8:00 a.m., the Lab’s Emergency Management Department will be testing the LabAlert system by sending an email, a text message to registered mobile devices, and a phone call to all Lab employees, affiliates, and contractors.
Please respond with your status and whereabouts. You will only need to respond to one of the messages, but it is critical that you do so. The notifications will continue until you respond.
This drill is part of the Department of Energy’s continuity of operations efforts. Participation in this drill will help keep yourself and your colleagues safe during an emergency.
The best way to receive emergency information is by enrolling your cell phone in the LabAlert system. LabAlert will be used during and after emergencies to broadcast safety information and instructions. If you have not registered your cell phone, please do so today.
LabAlert messages can also:
Expedite search and rescue efforts
Reduce the risk to first responders by minimizing unnecessary rescue efforts.
Begin communication with people on travel in areas experiencing emergencies.
Thank you for your cooperation.
