University of Vermont officials are preparing for the worst Tuesday by working with the FBI to prepare for a mass shooting event.

The FBI says it's valuable for the bureau to work with local law enforcement because they are exposed to many different types of emergency events.

"I think it's important to note that the law enforcement isn't engaged in just stopping killing anymore, we have transitioned to thinking about we know people are dying, so we don't wait any longer. We are partnering with our emergency service folks to get medical attention to them," UVM Police Chief Leanne Tuomey said.
