Vector Solutions Releases Complimentary EMS Training for Law Enforcement Amid Coronavirus Pandemic
SAN DIEGO, CA – April 2, 2020 – Vector Solutions, a leader in eLearning and performance support solutions for the world’s most critical industries, is offering law enforcement personnel complimentary access to three of its online EMS training courses as free educational resources during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic:
- Aerosol Transmissible Diseases
- Respiratory Protection
- EMS Protecting Yourself from Influenza
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact the United States, law enforcement personnel are tasked with new challenges when enforcing quarantine mandates and protecting communities. The three hours of training, provided through Vector’s award-winning TargetSolutions brand, offer law enforcement personnel with valuable safety best practices and critical information to help prevent infection.
“As a training and operations solution for public safety agencies, it is our duty to help serve the first responders putting their lives on the line every day during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Alex Berry, Executive Vice President for Vector Solutions. “By providing these EMS training courses at no cost, law enforcement agencies can better understand how airborne pathogens are transmitted, how to properly utilize protective equipment, and how to protect themselves and others.”
Counties across the nation are implementing closures of businesses, schools, parks, and other communal spaces due to COVID-19. As a result, law enforcement agencies must enforce temporary closures while protecting communities, putting them at risk of exposure to the virus. These online courses cover key lessons to protect personnel and support effective performance during this public health crisis.
Aerosol Transmissible Diseases is based on the ATD standard written by Cal/OSHA in 2009 as a direct result of SARS, Avian Influenza and the Novel Influenza H1N1. Lessons in this course address how airborne pathogens are emitted from an infected person.
Respiratory Protection provides information on the selection, use, and maintenance of respiratory protective devices so that they may be used in a safe and effective manner.
EMS Protecting Yourself from Influenza explores the varied viral mediums that cause influenza and other upper respiratory infections. The evidence-based lessons cover how the annual inoculation comes to be, transmission vectors, mortality and morbidity.
