Police to Talk Homeland Security With Burlington Volunteers

By: BNEWS

A member of the Burlington Police Department will be talking national security to a group of Burlington volunteers at their next meeting. 


Lieutenant Glen Mills, the Terrorism Liaison Officer for the department, will speak at the next Quarterly Meeting of the Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (BVRC) on Wednesday, September 9, a release states. The presentation will provide an overview of Homeland Security and the role that local public safety agencies and volunteers play in preventing, preparing for, and responding to all hazards, including terrorism and mass shootings.  


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 town sponsored events.  

 

The BVRC is in need of new medical and non-medical members.  If you are interested in becoming a BVRC volunteer or would like to learn more, please join us on September 9 from 5 to 7:00 p.m. 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 visit the Board of Health website at www.burlington.org or call 781-270-1955.
