Tactical

Rescue Task Force / Tactical Emergency Casualty Care

This course is designed to provide law enforcement officers with the knowledge and training to conduct warm zone operations, in conjunction with EMS, during an active threat / shooter event. This one day course will consist of a review of active threat / shooter statistics, tactics and trends, and will discuss the emerging paradigm shift for an integrated response from both law enforcement agencies and emergency medical services. It will present the three phases of tactical care (Hot / Warm / Cold) and expose law enforcement to their respective roles and responsibilities within each phase. It will include a practical skills session, where law enforcement will be exposed to new tactics and techniques that will help them to safely and successfully negotiate a warm zone with their EMS partners, and will culminate with scenario based training. We must work together in order to save lives during an active threat / shooter event, so it makes sense to train together. This is an excellent opportunity for law enforcement and emergency medical providers to train alongside their respective counterparts in the area or locality they would expect to work in or around, as they are likely to be among the first on scene to one of these events.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will receive a TECC certification from the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT).
Slots are limited for law enforcement, as we strive to keep a good student to instructor ratio. If you are interested in this opportunity, or would like more information, please contact Nick Carson as he will handle all course registrations.

Course will be hosted at the Newport Fire & Rescue building, 830 Union St, Newport VT.

A.L.I.C.E Training

  • Location: Burlington Highschool, Burlington Vermont.
  • Dates: June 26th and 27th.
  • Registration: Please click here to register.
  • In June of 2013, the Federal Department of Education significantly changed the recommended guidelines for how schools should prepare, train, and respond to an active shooter situation.  
    The Burlington Police Department embraces this standard of care and will be hosting Active Shooter Certification Training (ALICE Training) on June 26 & 27, 2018 at the Burlington High School in Burlington, Vermont. This certification is a two day train-the-trainer class on active shooter response management.  

    ALICE – Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate – is a set of proactive strategies that moves beyond lockdown and increases the chance of survival during a violent intruder event. ALICE is supported by more than 700 law enforcement agencies around the country and complies with the new standard of care recently developed by the Federal Department of Education, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Homeland Security
    (DHS), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
    ALICE isn’t only for school personnel. Anyone who works with the public can benefit from ALICE training. Attendees range from first responders, business owners, and health professionals.
    Please visit http://bit.ly/DoE-K12-Guidelines to learn more about the Department of Education’s guidelines on active shooter situations. 

     

    The purpose of advanced ALICE training is to educate local and school-based law enforcement, as well as church, hospital, and workplace administrators and safety professionals about our researched-based, proactive response approach to Violent Intruder events.

    The ALICE training program is designed to supplement current "Lock-down" or "Secure-in-Place" procedures used frequently in our public schools and institutions. Tragic historic events have dictated the need of enhanced response options to increase chances of surviving a horrific event.
