Brochure title:
Supporting Major Events and Venues
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory offers a multitude of capabilities for working through the many issues that a region and its governments may face in preparing for and hosting a major event. From security to transportation, the scientists at PNNL have the knowledge and experience to address the challenges associated with preparing for major events and venues. In the past, PNNL scientists have assisted in a number of events including several Olympic Games. They have performed vulnerability assessments, developed a tool for modeling the reaction of electric power and natural gas to events that could change or disrupt their delivery systems, organized traveler information to reduce the amount of congestion caused by a large influx of people and, most recently, scientists trained customs officials in Greece to use equipment that detects radioactive material.
