Several PNNL staff members traveling on Lab business were potentially in harm's way in September due to Hurricane Irma, the Mexico City earthquake, and the London tube (subway) bombing. When unavoidable incidents occur in areas where staff members are working, the Travel Safety Program and Travel Safety Core Team members work to locate and inform affected staff, while travelers are expected to report their statuses as soon as possible. In these cases, the staff members notified the Lab of their safety, while the PNNL Foreign Travel Office staff quickly mobilized to provide guidance and further information. Lessons Learned: Should a natural disaster, terrorist incident, or other emergency strike while on travel on behalf of PNNL, notify the Single Point of Contact as soon as possible with your status, even if you are simply reporting that you are safe or were not impacted. PNNL's e-Alerts system will send additional event information and links via email to potentially-impacted travelers.
