Posted on May 13, 2013 |
By Cindy Ellen Hill



A statewide search and rescue protocol inspired by an Addison County tragedy has passed the Vermont House and Senate and been sent to the Governor’s office to be signed into law.

Duclos died on a Ripton hiking trail after Vermont State Police failed to initiate a ground search for more than 12 hours after he was reported missing on a frigid night in January 2012.
