According to Manny L’Esperance, with the Lab’s Emergency Preparedness group, Los Alamos has seen the least amount of snow since the record keeping began back in 1906. This puts the Laboratory at extreme risk for wildfire. In order to protect the Lab, its property, and people, wildfire mitigation planning began 30 days early this year. During this talk you’ll learn the level of risk the Lab faces and how it is running thousands of fire and fuel modeling scenarios using Santa Fe-based Simtable technology to ensure that the Laboratory is as prepared as it possibly can be. You’ll also learn about how the Lab is coordinating with other regional entities since fire doesn’t care about by artificial boundaries. 

This event is open to those of all ages.
