Tours of the NRC Operations Center

Attendees are invited to participate in guided tours and experience the inner workings of the newly constructed NRC Operations Center, which serves as the focal point for coordination of events involving NRC licensed facilities or materials. The tours, being hosted by Office of Nuclear Security and Incident Response, will be offered concurrent with some of the technical sessions, and will emphasize select incident response assets, including RASCAL 4.3 and WEB EOC. The tours will also address the roles and responsibilities of various teams that compose the NRC response organization when it is staffed during an emergency. The tours will further address the resources that the NRC utilizes when communicating information to external stakeholders and receiving information from the licensees during an emergency. Tours will depart from the RIC registration desk area and participants will walk to the Three White Flint North (3WFN) building. Photo ID is required.
