State Employees are encouraged to take Emergency Procedures for the Individual State Employee, an online training in the Vermont Learning Management System (LMS). If employees cannot access the LMS, the training is also available on YouTube.
Emergency Procedures Plan - NEW 2019 orange flip charts that superceded the 2013 yellow flip charts
State Safety & Security can provide the following trainings to help you develop and maintain a facility specific Emergency Procedures Plan (EPP).
- EPP Awareness - overview of the online training - what is an EPP, why/statue given to BGS Commissioner, authorities we’ve taken our guidance from, who are the ECMs and SWs, expectations of employees, ECMs, SWs, and Security, introduction to the new orange flips charts, and an overview of some of the annexes, specific emphasis on Bomb Threat response, lockdown situations, importance of sharing contact info, and a general understanding of what to expect during an event.
- Emergency Coordinating Manager (ECM) and Safety Warden (SW) Training - specific training on roles and responsibilities before, during, and after an emergency.
- EPP DEvelopment Workshop - one-on-one plan development with the ECM and SWs to complete the EPP.
Tabletop Exercise - table-based discussion of various issues in response to a hypothetical, simulated emergency.
Once this development process is completed, we will be able to conduct an Emergency Drill.
* Unannounced drills will not be conducted in BGS owned or leased buildings. Unannounced drills can cause panic and injury. Drills that are announced increase the participants knowledge and skills of how to respond in an emergency without elevating their anxiety or perceived safety. Building occupants should never have to question whether an alarm is real or a drill.
