BURLINGTON, Vt. — A Vermont Occupational Safety and Health Administration report says state police lacked the medical supplies needed to treat a trooper who died of heat-related injuries at the Ethan Allen Firing Range.

The Burlington Free Press (http://bfpne.ws/1SnIluH ) obtained documents regarding VOSHA’s investigation into the September 2015 death of 28-year-old Trooper Kyle Young, who collapsed at the Jericho range while trying out for a tactical team.

The report also states that several troopers failed to recognize that Young was suffering from heat stroke.

Documents show that the firing range was issued citations totaling $6,300 for two violations — lack of ice packs on-scene and lack of a written guide for use of respiration equipment.

Maj. Walt Goodell says troopers learn about heat injuries during the course of their annual first-aid training sessions.
