Alert: Los Alamos Declares State of Emergency

Recommended Posts


As I posted earlier there was a big concern for the Los Alamos wildfire specifically because of the laboratory that might be affect by the fire. The lab contains radioactive and hazardous material. The lab was also the birth place of the first atomic bomb.

With that said, let's pray that nothing goes wrong.

Los Alamos County officials are reporting that the Las Conchas Wildfire is now threatening Los Alamos.

They are ordering a mandatory evacuation which will begin and proceed in this order:

Group 1: Western, Quemazon, Ponderosa;

Group 2: North Community, Barranca Mesa, North Mesa;

Group 3: East of Diamond and the remainder of the town site. White Rock is NOT being evacuated at this time. Residents in Los Alamos should NOT go to White Rock to stay in case it is later evacuated.

Residents are urged to prepare now to be ready to go when their Group is called using Reverse 911.

The best sources of information about Group releases for the evacuation will continue to be through news outlets.

The County is first evacuating those residents who are the closest to the immediate threat of fire.

Residents should wait for the automated Reverse 911 phone call.

Once called, proceed in an orderly fashion to police control points and follow any additional instructions to safely leave the County.
