Ensuring public health and safety is a priority on a daily basis, but even more so at the present time due to the COVID-19 global health crisis. Your department may be undergoing an overwhelming amount of pressure to keep both the public and your own staff safe and healthy right now. Fortunately, there are ways you can use your public safety management software to navigate this crisis more efficiently.
Utilizing Remote Access Capabilities
When public health issues like the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus arise, measures are taken on a state and/or national level to mitigate the threat to the public. As we’ve seen recently, this can include temporarily closing businesses, putting limitations on public gatherings, and otherwise keeping people out of non-essential public spaces as much as possible. Your department, however, is essential to combating the threat, and you need your personnel healthy and able to work each day.
If you haven’t been utilizing the remote accessibility of your public safety software to its fullest extent, now is the time to do so. Practicing distancing measures while still performing your duties is made easier when you and your staff are able to remotely access data that is essential to their duties, including:
• Training records
• Performance documents
• Observation reports
• Equipment status
• Personnel qualifications and certifications
Making Adjustments to Training Programs
Training for recruits, team members, and even instructors often involves close contact, so your department may be taking measures to mitigate the spread of infection by suspending your training programs. With the right FTO/PTO software, you can easily make adjustments to these programs to ensure the safety of personnel while utilizing additional manpower for urgent, COVID-related duties. If you need to switch to online instruction and training, your software can help you in establishing new procedures to keep trainees and instructors safe.
