"We were faced with an incomplete, outdated set of policies that has resulted in preventable liability and labor-relations issues. The release of the Lexipol Fire Policy Manual has provided us with a solid foundation upon which we can build a policy manual that is based on sound legal interpretations and best practices. The Lexipol product is easily customizable, which allows us to include policies that address our local needs. The subscription also includes training modules in our policies, which closes the gap on the most overlooked aspect of policy management."
Michael W. McLaughlin, Chief
City of Merced Fire Department, CA
"As a Fire Chief coming into a new organziation, I determined very quickly that our policies were either outdated or non-existent, placing the department and city at significant risk. I was excited to hear that Lexipol had branched into the fire service discipline and after reviewing the services, I immediately purchased the fire policy manual without hesitation."
Bruce Stedman, Chief
Arlington Fire Department, WA
"The main reason I chose to purchase the Lexipol fire version of its policy manual was because our police department has had a lot of success with it since its adoption. They are current with state statutes and laws, and more importantly consistent in the way they follow policies and procedures. This would not only allow our department to maintain consistency with certain policies, but rely on legal insight and industry best practices to formulate our own policy manual."
Pete Mercado, Chief
Calexico Fire Department, CA
"When looking at the cost of risk and litigation associated with policies that are outdated or insufficient, the services offered by Lexipol make total sense. The fire industry has needed a fire policy manual service for a long time, and now we have one that is easy to use and keeps us up-to-date with the legal and regulatory changes that impact our industry and directly affect the way we do business."
Nathan Trauernicht, Chief
UC Davis Fire Department, CA
"One of our greatest challenges over the years has been creating policies that address both legal and best practice issues, and then keeping those policies current. We are pleased with the Lexipol service and anticipate the time spent setting up the fire policy manual will yield a finished product that is well worth the investment."
