TOUR #5  NRC Operations Center Tour #5

Headquarters Operations Center Tours

Thursday, March 14, 2019 Tour #5     10:30 a.m.

Sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Security and Incident Response

The NRC invites attendees to experience the inner workings of the NRC Operations Center, which serves as the focal point for coordination of events involving NRC-licensed facilities. This session will be offered concurrently with some of the technical sessions and will provide an overview of the roles and responsibilities of various incident response teams that compose the NRC response organization when it is staffed during an emergency and the tools they employ. It will also include discussions on the NRC’s process for receiving information from its licensees during an emergency, and how the NRC responds to such information and then manages this information through interactions with external stakeholders.

Tours will depart from the lower level of the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. From there, participants will walk together to the Three White Flint North building. Entry to all NRC facilities requires screening of individuals and their belongings as well as valid photo identification (i.e., driver’s license or passport). Participants will not be permitted to bring any large items (e.g., suitcases, luggage) or any electronic devices into the NRC Operations Center, and photography is strictly prohibited. We recommend that attendees bring only what they will need to expedite entry. NRC staff will escort visitors for the duration of their tour.
