Watch Taylor Young’s story.

Copley Hospital Staff and Morristown Police are holding an Active Shooter Response Training 3:30pm-6:30pm Thursday, August 23, on First Floor of Health Center Building

Morrisville, VT…There will be police presence on Copley Hospital’s campus Thursday afternoon, August 23, 2018.  From 3:30pm-6:30pm, Copley Hospital staff members and police officers will be participating in an active shooter response training course. The training includes use of airsoft guns, which are designed to look like real guns.

Copley staff are being trained in ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate). ALICE is a set of proactive, opinion-based strategies that increase chances of survival during a violent intruder or active shooter event.

Staff trained today will, in turn, train additional hospital employees. Copley is proud of the commitment and quality of its staff – people helping people,  in the true spirit of a community hospital.
