The Verona Municipal Alliance Committee (VMAC) has provided educational programming and prevention outreach to the citizens of Verona since 1989. Our funding comes from a grant through the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse with matching funds from the Township of Verona.
VMAC sponsors programs in collaboration with the Board of Education, Verona Community Center, Health & Recreation Departments, Verona Police Department and local community groups.
Our Featured Program: Aware Awake Alive
VMAC is proud to work with the VHS Guidance Counselors and the Verona Police Department to Aware Awake Alive presentation to the Verona High School students in advance of what is one of the biggest party seasons of the year and before seniors go off to college. Presentations will take place during school hours in early May. Aware Awake Alive seeks to prevent loss of life to alcohol poisoning by educating teens, young adults and parents on the dangers and symptoms of alcohol overdose. Visit www.AwareAwakeAlive.org for more information.
Laws vary from state to state, but NJ’s 911 Lifeline Law provides immunity to those who call for help, stay with the person in need, and speak to authorities. Remind your children that the 911 Law protects them from prosecution, but no fear of getting in trouble is worth a friend’s life.
Make the call and save a life!
