Berkeley, Sandia Write
Airport Security Report


A report that will help security managers of airports and other transportation facilities reduce the risk of chemical and biological attacks has been developed by a joint team of researchers from Berkeley and Sandia Labs. "Guidelines to Improve Airport Preparedness Against Chemical and Biological Terrorism" makes concrete recommendations on improving security and assessing vulnerable areas and helps its readers understand the nature of chemical and biological attacks. The Berkeley Lab team included Ashok Gadgil and Phil Price from the Environmental Energy Technologies Division. Full story.

Follow These Tips To
Improve Deliveries

The Lab's Receiving Department (housed within the Facilities Division's Site Services) would like to share a few guidelines with employees to ensure they are receiving their packages in a timely and efficient manner. Contact Denise Washington (x4935) for Lab address changes or special delivery requirements. Have tracking and purchase order numbers handy when checking on the status of deliveries. Also, only business-related deliveries should come to the Lab, no personal items. To check delivery status online, go here (using employee ID number or tracking number).
