Community Radiation Monitoring Group Meeting
at Fuller Lodge, Los Alamos
10:07 am June 11, 2008
This community meeting was facilitated by the New Mexico Environmental Department with staff from Los Alamos National Labratory and focused on a presentation by Jay Dallman, head of the LANL Dynamic and Energetic Materials Division on LANL's experimental explosion and explosive disposal programs. He has been working with explosives at LANL for 25 years. He presented an overall view of the program and responded to a series of questions submitted by the group.

Entire Meeting
Unedited and with little enhancement. 1 hour 53 minutes. There is mic noise as we move from presenter to audience questions, and fan noise from the overhead projector.

Pueblo Ceremonial Days
1:16 minutes at about 11:13 am
Question by Marion Naranjo of Santa Clara Pueblo on whether explosions are allowed during ceremonial times.

We are posting some key sections of the CRMG meeting in view of the 10-20 acre fire that occured on a Red Flag day, June 11, in the area (TA-39). People in White Rock reported hearing an explosion from TA-39 the same day.


Jay Dallman of LANL at Fuller Lodge

The Albuquerque Journal North reports 6-13-08 that a 15 acre fire was caused by LANL testing of equipment for a shockwave measuring device for the Nevada test site, and a valve triggered by an explosive device failed and spewed out hot gases on to grass in TA-39. The Los Alamos Monitor also has a story with other details and estimating the fire size at 10 acres. NMED estimated the fire size at 15-20 acres.

A Red Flag fire risk warning had been issued hours before the accident occured. The same morning Jay Dallman was telling the CRMG meeting that no operations are allowed on Red Flag days.

Line Management
1:07 minutes at about 10:50 am
All activities are in observation & full control of line management levels 1, 2 & 3.

Operation on Red Flag Days 2:56 minutes at about 11:10 am
Jay Dallman states "Red Flag stops all operations" in answering a question by Sheri Kotowski of Dixon on when in the year experiments are held.

Operations evaluated in advance for fire potential, types of mitigation measures detailed, coordination with fire departments.
