Members of the news media periodically cover Hanford's public tours. If a member of the news media is scheduled to be on your tour, you will receive advance notice, and you will be given an opportunity to "opt in" or "opt out" of appearing in any photographs or video footage on the day of your tour.

Note: Hanford Site Cleanup tours are subject to immediate cancellation any time due to unanticipated circumstances.

In the unlikely event of an emergency the tour bus may be required to remain on the Hanford Site for longer than scheduled, or the tour may be immediately terminated. Tour participants should be prepared for delays or an earlier than normal return.
