The Los Alamos Fire Department LAFD provides emergency response services to the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The laboratory places high expectations on the delivery of these services over a twenty-year period, however, multiple third-party evaluators identified problems with the LAFDs preincident planning process. This thesis investigated pre-incident planning improvement methods and found that the LAFD plans for the Los Alamos National Laboratory lacked information and collaborative efforts. A review of related literature and best practices from other national laboratory sites and accredited fire departments provided potential solutions. This research recommends that the LAFD establish a working group to improve the pre-incident planning process at Los Alamos National Laboratory, using the best practice examples as guidelines.
