Featured Case Study
Arlington Fire Department
"As a Fire Chief coming into a new organization, I determined very quickly that our policies were either outdated or non-existent, placing the department and ci
Michael W. McLaughlin, Chief City of Merced Fire Department, CA
"We were faced with an incomplete, outdated set of policies that has resulted in preventable liability and labor-relations issues.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."
Battalion Chief Jeff Stewart Clark County (WA) Fire District 3
“The benefit of Lexipol is that the work has already been done for you. All of the laws and standards are there; it’s just a matter of conforming it to your organization.”
Chief Aaron Dickey Hillndale Volunteer Fire Department
“I would definitely recommend Lexipol to any fire department—big, small, paid, volunteer. It’s extremely easy to customize it to fit your needs. For us, it’s really made a difference.”
Division Chief David LaPere Tulare (CA) Fire Department
“Amateurs talk tactics, professionals talk logistics. Lexipol is the logistical support for policy development. Without that platform, it’s like trying to travel 1,000 miles with no vehicle and no road. Lexipol gives you the car; they build the road.”
Chief Jeffrey Pilz Hillside (IL) Fire Department
“Anyone who’s done anything with training knows [Lexipol co-founder] Gordon Graham and [Lexipol consultant] Billy Goldfeder. When my firefighters ask, ‘Who wrote this?’ I can say it’s not some lawyer who’s just trying to make buck and doesn’t care about you. Gordon and Billy are vested in the fire service, in risk management. As soon as the members know this is coming from them, they buy in.”
Chief Bob Watson Borger (TX) Fire Department
“Lexipol serves three purposes: One, it protects citizens by giving us vetted guidelines to follow. Two, it protects firefighters because in court, they can show that they follow the guidelines. And three, as long as we follow the policies, it protects the city’s assets.”
Chief Jon Cohn Greenfield (WI) Fire Department
"Once you have a wide range of policy in place, it’s easy to tuck in new points as needed. And it’s updated in real time—you don’t have to mess around with acknowledgement sheets and replacing pieces of paper. It’s all electronic. Lexipol has streamlined every bit of the process."
Chief Ted Martin Branson (MO) Fire & Rescue
“Before, our firefighters really only accessed policy when they absolutely needed it, when something went wrong. With Lexipol, policy content is so much more accessible. And with the ongoing training, we’re going to get policy into their heads.”
Chief Clayton O'Brien Napoleon (OH) Fire and Rescue
"Lexipol has been one of my biggest ways to be successful as a brand-new chief. We had a lot of work to do in the fire department when I became chief, and I don't know how I would have gotten it all done in such a short time without Lexipol."
Assistant Chief Scott Neal Bullhead City (AZ) Fire Department
“If we were to create a new policy manual by tackling one policy every week, it would take us 3 ½ years to go through our current manual. Lexipol is taking the heavy lifting off us.”
