Lexipol launches Coronavirus Learning & Policy Center for public safety, local government
The Center provides free access to COVID-19-related courses, policies, articles and learning management tools
FRISCO, Texas — A COVID-19-focused resource is now available to help local government and public safety agencies respond to the pandemic.
Earlier this week, Lexipol launched the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Learning & Policy Center, which provides free online access to coronavirus-related courses, policies and articles, as well as learning management tools to help first responders reduce risks associated with coronavirus response and to help agencies develop coronavirus policies and training.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has already transformed daily life and will continue to pose increased challenge and risk for those tasked with serving and protecting our communities,” said Lexipol CEO Alex Ford. “The Coronavirus Learning & Policy Center brings together the full the breadth of Lexipol’s capabilities to create a trusted source for information and management tools to help public safety agencies and local government organizations prepare their response and protect their personnel.”
Some of the resources available for individuals and organizations:
- A COVID-19 course for first responders and local government
- Refresher training (e.g., influenza, communicable diseases, PPE) for frontline employees
- Training on dealing with the media and disaster communications for leaders
- Downloadable policies and procedures
Agencies and government organizations can use Lexipol’s learning management system (LMS) to electronically assign courses and content to personnel to review, track progress and create training records when assignments are complete.
The site also includes exclusive, up-to-date COVID-19 coverage and analysis from Lexipol’s digital media communities: PoliceOne, FireRescue1, EMS1, Corrections1 and Gov1.
Lexipol is the parent company of PoliceOne.com, FireRescue1.com, EMS1.com, Corrections1.com and Gov1.com.
