Today’s Times Argus features a front-page story about the Scott Administration launching a review of the State’s response to last Friday’s shooter report at the Tax Department in Montpelier. In the story, Secretary of the Administration Suzanne Young is quoted, saying:
“With any situation like this that occurred on Friday, there already is an after-action review being conducted. There are going to be meetings held, both external and internal, with the law enforcement who responded, with state employees who were impacted, with our emergency coordinators in all of the buildings."
Note: VSEA is also reaching out to its members who were impacted by last Friday’s serious scare to get their thoughts on what worked and what didn’t. With VSEA members sitting on a statewide Joint Safety and Health Maintenance Committee, the information gleaned will help these members share with this committee what was most beneficial and what needs to be fixed or implemented.
