An Opportunity for Community Service and work towards a Merit Badge

Vernon Public Schools is pleased to co-host the Vernon 2016 I.M.P.A.C.T. (Integrated Municipal Preparedness and Collaborative Training) exercise scheduled for Friday, October 7th, 2016 at Rockville High School.  This regional full-scale mass-casualty training exercise will provide emergency response personnel and school officials with a unique opportunity to test and enhance their emergency preparedness and response capabilities.  In order to be effectively prepared for any type of emergency, we must hold meaningful drills to enhance our capacity to respond to real-world events.

For this training to be successful, over 100 volunteers are needed to be role-players in the exercise.  Volunteers are needed from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm on the day of the exercise.  This training provides an excellent opportunity for high school students to fulfill a portion of their school required community service hours.  This training also provides an exciting opportunity for adult volunteers to support their community and to learn how to be better prepared for emergencies.

Adults can also participate.

Please consider volunteering for this important event.  To volunteer please contact us at safety@vernon-ct.gov or (860) 870-6000 x123.   To learn more about the Vernon IMPACT training program, please click on the following link: https://youtu.be/6CXRhz6ElBs.  Thank you.
