Procedure to Follow in the Event That Building 245 is Attacked by Vikings

Since the decline of the Carolingian Empire in the 10th century, Building 245 of the NASA Ames Research Center has been subject to periodic raids by Viking marauders. These marauders generally attack in search of gold, religious icons, and other forms of plunder. The NASA Ames Barbarian Affairs Office has established the following procedures for defense against Viking raids:


Defense Against Viking Raids

1.0 Complete a DARC-820AD -- 'Identifying a Barbarian Attack' 
    -- to determine if the visitors are Viking raiders.
   1.1 Are the strangers wearing weapons, helmets, and armor?
   1.2 Do the strangers lack trade goods or other evidence 
       that they might only be peaceful merchants?
   1.3 Do the strangers have NASA Ames visitor ID badges?
      1.31 If so, do these badges identify the visitors as 
           Viking raiders?

2.0 Fill out Viking Raid Logbook in Division Office.

3.0 Complete an FF-1066AD -- 'Report of Viking Raid'
   3.1 Section I -- Identity of the attackers
