Free EMS Training for Law Enforcement

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, law enforcement agencies can now access 10 essential EMS training courses in their TargetSolutions site.

As the number of COVID-19 cases continue to rise, law enforcement agencies are at the frontlines of enforcing quarantine mandates and responding to emergency calls. Due to this, officers must adapt to this new normal in their daily operations.

Law enforcement agencies need to understand how to recognize symptoms of COVID-19, appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and health and wellness practices. To help protect officers, select EMS courses are now available to law enforcement agencies in TargetSolutions at no additional cost.
