Public Safety

Some of the most important partnerships we have are those with the law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical personnel of Onslow County, the City of Jacksonville, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, and Marine Corps Air Station New River. We know it is vital that our emergency responders get the best training possible, and we aim to deliver. We have subject matter experts as coordinators and liaisons to arrange training for the public safety triad.
