The bottom line is to keep water bottles out of industrial areas and contact your base Safety or Bioenvironmental
Engineering Office if you need more information.

Within minutes of the explosion, personnel from the fire department, 320th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron, 320th Expeditionary Explosive Ordnance Flight, 320th Expeditionary Safety Office and 320th Medical and Bioenvironmental
Flights responded to the scene to assist the victims and to ensure the safety of the scene.
One potential partnership that could help the COEPs offer some long-term solutions is the Katrina Environmental Research and Restoration Network (KERRN), a vision conceived by John McLachlan, director of the Center for Bioenvironmental
Research at Tulane and Xavier Universities in New Orleans.
It contains four Class 2 disciplines: agricultural mechanization, water and construction engineering, bioenvironmental
and energy engineering, agricultural electrification and automation--four undergraduate majors in agricultural engineering.
The school provides two officer training programs: Basic Officer Training, an intensive 12-week program that prepares officer candidates for the technical, physical and professional requirements of commissioned service, and Commissioned Officer Training, a four-week initial officership training for 1,200 to 1,500 judge advocates, chaplains, medical service officers (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, bioenvironmental
engineers and hospital administrators) and medical scholarship recipients each year.
John McLachlan, director of the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental
Research, said that preparing for disasters like Katrina requires the involvement of virtually every academic discipline.
