TargetSolutions Joins Forces with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) to Honor Outstanding Officers
Leading Safety Training Solution Provider Sponsors the IAFC’s VCOS Training Officer Recognition Award for 2018 – Nomination Period Runs Now Through June 25
SAN DIEGO, CA (May 3, 2018) – TargetSolutions, a Vector Solutions brand offering the leading online training and records management system for public safety agencies, hosted its Networking & Training Workshop on Tuesday at Firehouse World in San Diego.
Attendees from across the country gathered at the Marriott Gaslamp Quarter to receive platform utilization tips and learn what TargetSolutions has in store for 2018 and beyond. TargetSolutions announced its next release planned for April, TargetSolutions Check It, which is built to track equipment and fire apparatus inspections on a mobile device.
Executive Vice President Marc Scheipe addressed attendees, thanking them for their tremendous contributions to TargetSolutions over the years.
“One of the things I’ve been struck by is not only the great team I have but more so than anything the great customers we have,” said Scheipe, who joined the company in October of 2017. “It’s more than customers, you’re partners in everything we do and oftentimes on the same side of the table helping us figure out how to make the platform work better and what content to add. It’s just been my privilege to get to know all of you and my team.”
One of the afternoon’s highlights was the awards presentation in which TargetSolutions recognized several platform managers for their tremendous dedication to delivering outstanding fire department training.
The Helping Hand Awards
What Lieutenant David Piper of Orland Fire Protection District (Ill.) and Deputy Chief Steve Malone of Manhattan Fire Department (Ill.) have accomplished together with the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System 19 (MABAS-19) in Illinois is nothing short of remarkable. The duo has teamed up to assist more than 150 neighboring departments in the state with the implementation of the TargetSolutions platform, Piper said.
Piper and Malone worked together to develop annual training trackers customized for the state of Illinois. For this incredible commitment to firefighter training, they received the honorable award for going above and beyond to assist other agencies.
The Vanguard Award goes each year to someone who exemplifies dedication in the delivery of fire department training and this year’s recipient is Captain Rob Kandle of the Kennewick Fire Department (Wash.) for maximizing his department’s training program through TargetSolutions. Captain Kevin Platt of the Contra Costa Fire Protection District (Calif.) was named the 2018 Technology Achievement Award winner for helping strategize numerous enhancements to improve the platform.
