The Town of Islip HA has utilized this product since 1993. Why any agency would use another product or spend time and considerable funds to have some consultant (and I do get asked to provide this type of service for other agencies on occassion)do the work with half the quality is a strange thought to me. The plan is detailed, up to date accurate and provides an indepth training tool. We go over a chapter a month at our staff meetings to reinforce the policies. Measure the cost compared to what it would take to do the work yourself or to hire an outside source. Even if you do not have the time you could utilize other resources to review the product and edit it to meet you agency goals. I have served with three HA's each one now uses this plan successfully. simple, buy it.
