What Is LOCKDOWN?
During some emergencies, it may become necessary to "Lockdown" a building or buildings on an installation to protect lives and minimize the overall exposure to danger.
A Lockdown, similar to Shelter in Place (SIP), is a temporary sheltering technique utilized to limit exposure to a threat, usually an Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP) incident, i.e. an Active Shooter incident. It is the immediate movement or removal of all personnel from the outside to inside structures. When alerted, occupants of any building within the subject area will lock all doors and windows, barring entry or exit to anyone until the “all clear” has been sounded. This procedure converts any building into a large "Safe Room." A Lockdown can last from a few minutes to several hours, depending on the situation.

Congrats to all who made it!
A message from our JAG:
As we take time to celebrate Thanksgiving, something to be thankful for is your right to vote. In 2018, every state in the U.S. will have voting on congressional seats. Most states will hold voting on other issues. Regardless of the state you're from, your voice will matter.
Two documents can help with this process: (1) the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA); and (2) the Federal Write In Absentee Ballot (FWAB). Call my office at (775) 426-2854 if you need help accessing these forms.
The FPCA is used to register to vote, request absentee ballots, and update your contact information. If you have not registered to vote in your state or requested absentee ballots, I strongly encourage you to fill out this form. The FWAB is a form to keep on hand in case you do not receive your absentee ballot from your state in time. However, since the earliest 2018 State Primary Election occurs in March 2018, you shouldn't need to use it.
Attached is the 2018 State Primary Election calendar, which provides the dates for all state primaries and the general election.
If you have any questions about how to fill out the attached forms, when to do so, or why you should, please feel free call, email, or visit the legal office (Building 350).
