DPS announces the availability of new training related to active shooters and violent threat situations
Vermont Business Magazine The Vermont Department of Public Safety announces a new public safety initiative, called SURVIVERMONT. This program is a community-based babysitting initiative created to educate and empower Vermonters with steps they can take to protect themselves and their family members if faced with an active shooter or violent threat situation.
Supported by a grant from the Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Support, SURVIVERMONT combines three easy-to-remember concepts from established federal public safety programs: see something, say something; Run, hide and fight; and Stop the bleeding.
This program is a partnership between Vermont Emergency Management and first responder communities across the state.
The first two dates and times for this community caretaking initiative are:
- Monday August 1: 6-7:30 p.m., Vermont State Police Royalton Barracks, 2011 Vermont Route 107 in Bethel. 25 spaces available. Click here to register online.
