As a former RO, I was thinking of and referring to reactor monitoring and control instruments.  But, I take your point.  Those particular instruments are pretty important.   Especially if one wants to live to a ripe old age without glowing in the dark.

When Ron, John, and I went through Nuke school in 62, this (from Wiki) is what we were told;

"Scram is usually cited as being an acronym for safety control rod axe man; however, the term is probably a backronym. The actual axe man at the first chain-reaction was Norman Hilberry. In a letter to Dr. Raymond Murray (January 21, 1981), Hilberry wrote:

When I showed up on the balcony on that December 2, 1942 afternoon, I was ushered to the balcony rail, handed a well sharpened fireman's axe and told, "if the safety rods fail to operate, cut that manila rope." The safety rods, needless to say, worked, the rope was not cut. I don't believe I have ever felt quite as foolish as I did then.  I did not get the SCRAM [Safety Control Rod Axe Man] story until many years after the fact. Then one day one of my fellows who had been on Zinn's construction crew called me Mr. Scram. I asked him, "How come?" And then the story.

In a May 17, 2011,  entry on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's official blog, NRC historian Tom Wellock argues that this account is effectively an urban legend and arose many years after the event."

I went through nuke school at Mare Island in 1962 and that is what I remember being told, as well.

Still confused. Neither SL1 nor The current waste disposal site are at the navy site.  (Nor is Arco.)

And, come to think of it, I've never actually seen the air strip.  lol
