In an effort to provide centralized information storage in support of coordinated emergency readiness and response, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) and the Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) have collaborated to create the Indiana Public Safety Personnel Portal (Indiana Acadis Portal). This platform intends to keep public safety personnel’s records up to date by offering pertinent updates while providing access to the information released by other organizations on their behalf. Both EMS and fire certificate holders can renew their certifications through the Portal as long as they follow the guidelines set out by the EMS Commission and the Board of Firefighting Personnel Standards and Education. The platform also permits certification exams, refreshes training, monitors companies, and streamlines interactions with emergency services responders from all over the state.
