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.

The effort to restructure the state’s search and rescue practices was launched by Rep. Willem Jewett, D-Ripton, after the hypothermia death of Levi Duclos, a 19-year-old New Haven resident. 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.
