SAN DIEGO – Vector Solutions, a leader in eLearning and performance support solutions for public safety agencies and other crucial industries, is releasing more than 20 hours of complimentary EMS refresher training for first responders.

In the fight against COVID-19, EMS agencies across the country are calling for all possible support to help personnel serve communities, save lives and protect themselves. Many states are asking for retired medical professionals and first responders to return to work to assist with response to this unprecedented health crisis.
