Field Assistance and Oversight Liaison (FAOL) Program

NNSA ensures that capabilities are in place to respond to any NNSA and Department of Energy facility emergency. It is also the nation's premier responder to any nuclear or radiological incident within the United States or abroad and provides operational planning and training to counter both domestic and international nuclear terrorism.

NNSA's FAOL program promotes the effective implementation of its Comprehensive Emergency System with an external emphasis including interfacing with field emergency managers, the Office of Emergency Management Oversight, and the Defense Nuclear Facility Safety Board.  Other interfaces may include external regulating agencies regarding emergency management issues on Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
