Burlington Police and Fire Departments to Discuss “Rescue Task Force” at BVRC Meeting on March 20
All Are Welcome to Attend
Interested members of the public are invited to attend the next meeting of the Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (BVRC) on Tuesday, March 20 at 6:00 pm. The Burlington Police Department and the Burlington Fire Department will be providing a presentation on how their departments are conducting preparedness training for active threat situations. The Burlington Police and Fire Departments are the first in the area to adopt “Rescue Task Force.” Rescue Task Force is the state of the art in active shooter response and involves close coordination between police, fire and EMS personnel to greatly decrease the numbers of casualties at a hazardous event.
The BVRC is a volunteer organization whose members are ready to provide assistance to the Burlington Community in the event of an emergency, such as widespread power outages, pandemic disease outbreaks, or severe weather emergencies. BVRC members participate in trainings, exercises, and drills to become better prepared for emergency situations. In addition, BVRC members provide assistance to the Board of Health during flu clinics, household hazardous waste collections, blood pressure screenings, and other public health initiatives.
If you are interested in becoming a BVRC volunteer or would just like to hear the presentation, please join us on March 20 at 6:00 pm at the Murray Kelly Wing, Human Services Building, 61 Center Street and RSVP to 781-270-1955. If you are unable to attend the meeting and are interested in finding our more about the BVRC, please call the Board of Health at 781-270-1955.
