Officials earlier this week announced that a tip from a retired airman about buried sealed containers with radioactive residues near the bunkers prompted an investigation, which revealed radioactivity in the bunker and called into question the safety of personnel. But they said Friday there was no risk to those who worked in the bunker during the Cold War era or more recently.

"The radiation continues to be contained within the (epoxy) paint," Maj. Joe Buccino said. The Air Force covered the floor of the bunker with epoxy paint, which at the time was standard procedure to contain this type of radiation, he said, but when the Army started using the building, the paint began to chip away and exposed the contaminants.

items used in assembling nuclear weapons were placed in containers decades ago and buried in proximity to the bunker, which is one of nine near the airfield.
