ROANE COUNTY CELEBRATES TWO NEW FACILITIES THAT WILL SOON OPEN TO HELP EMERGENCY PERSONNEL

Officials from the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and Consolidated Nuclear Security celebrated two new facilities yesterday that will soon begin operation at the Y-12 National Security Complex. The new fire station and Emergency Operations Center replace buildings that were constructed in the 1940s.

Both new facilities were NNSA pilot projects designed to streamline the efficiency and delivery of construction projects under $50 million. Y-12 Site Manager Gene Sievers said, “Today marks the end of a long process to plan for and build these two facilities to commercial-like standards, saving taxpayer dollars and setting an example for future projects.”

The fire station will provide ample space for Y-12 Fire Department equipment, personnel, and training activities. It is designed to provide easy entry and exit for equipment, enhancing response capabilities for site needs as well as mutual aid in the surrounding communities. The new EOC will provide a state-of-the-art facility for 24/7 plant systems monitoring and will consolidate emergency operations management, communications, and response technical support into one location to enhance emergency management.
