Front Line Mobile Health recognizes the significant impact COVID-19 has had — and is currently having — on the public safety departments we work with. In line with our philosophy of service, we are committed to providing knowledge and resources about what other fire, law enforcement and emergency medical service agencies are doing to mitigate the significant impact of this virus.
Additionally, we partner with multiple laboratories conducting COVID-19 antibody testing for public safety professionals who may have been exposed to COVID-19. This is a valuable tool, not only for our public safety professionals, but also for department leadership as they continue to face the staffing challenges created by the pandemic.
For those who have been infected with the virus and have had significant time away from work, we also provide return to work exams, specifically measuring cardiovascular health with Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET), ultrasounds of the heart, chest X-rays, and appropriate laboratory testing. These exams are meant to assess the ability of the individual to successfully and safely return to work.
Front Line also assists its clients with developing effective COVID-related return-to-work policies and procedures that focus on the safety of both the department and the individual — balancing risk to mission and risk to force.
We follow all local, state, and federal guidelines during all of our examinations, ensuring proper use of PPE and sanitization of all instruments and spaces used after each patient.
