Vermont’s Department of Public Safety’s new SURVIVERMONT will train Vermonters to protect themselves and family members if they are confronted with an active shooter or violent threat situation.
Supported by a grant from the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance, SURVIVERMONT combines three easy-to-remember concepts from established federal public safety programs: See Something, Say Something; Run, Hide and Fight; and Stop the Bleed.
