2021 has been quite the year.
As emergency responders continued to serve their communities under uniquely challenging conditions this year, spearheaded by a persistent pandemic and compounded by staffing shortages, burnout, and other factors, Vector Solutions continued to provide public safety agencies with trusted and innovative technology solutions to help keep first responders safe, prepared, and effective.
We are proud of our contributions to support the personnel operational readiness of first responders and invite you to peruse this collection of our top news and announcements, product and content updates, and resources from 2021.
In August, Vector Solutions and Acadis, formerly Envisage Technologies, joined forces to help elevate the safety and success of public safety agencies and the communities they serve.
Together, Vector Solutions and Acadis serve more than 21,000 public safety customers and 3.2 million personnel, creating a unified solution that helps agencies meet training, performance, regulatory, and compliance requirement needs through one trusted vendor.
In October, we launched our annual firefighter cancer awareness campaign, offering fire service members complimentary access to NFPA 1851 - Cancer-Related Risks for Firefighting. Vector is donating $1 to the American Cancer Society and the Firefighter Cancer Support Network for every course completed, up to $5,000 to each organization.
This powerful live skill assessment mobile app integrated with the Vector LMS training management system boosted its capabilities of competency confirmation with new signature workflows and improved pass/fail evaluation visibility with two new reports.
New and improved functionality came to Vector Scheduling in 2021 to aid in operations with new time-off blackout days and daily schedule email options; increase customization with updates to strike team deployments, time-off accruals, and force hire lists; and support mobility with a new mobile app.
With 2,500+ titles for all types of government agencies, including 450+ hours for fire departments, 250+ hours for EMS providers, 250+ hours for law enforcement officers, plus OSHA, HR, and more, Vector Solutions is committed to providing first responders with engaging and relevant online training courses to help keep them safe, compliant, and effective.
