The land passersby see cleared in west Oak Ridge near the Oak Ridge Turnpike will soon host a training center for first responders, including those responding to nuclear emergencies. Morris Hassler, senior director of Global Security & Strategic Partnership for Consolidated Nuclear Security (CNS), the company which manages Y-12 National Security Complex, recently spoke to the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce about these new buildings, which together will be called the Oak Ridge Enhanced Technology and Training Center. He said the buildings will include classrooms, augmented and virtual reality and simulated training. There will be three training related buildings, he said.
