Tri-County Community College (TCCC) will hold its annual Fontana Public Safety College from Feb. 18 – 21 at Fontana Village, with class offerings ranging from fire certification to fire and rescue courses.

“The Fontana Public Safety College is an annual event that is held to meet the needs of the residents in the community, as well as the agencies within our community,” said Henry Angelopulos, director of the public safety training program at TCCC. “We wanted to bridge the gaps between the different facets of the program, such as fire, emergency services, and some basic law enforcement training, in order to better meet those needs.”

The 2016 Fontana Public Safety College will feature classes for anyone looking to enhance their skills, in need of refresher training or currently working toward gaining their certification.

“As part of the effort to rebrand the TCCC public safety training program, the Fontana Fire and Rescue College was renamed this year to broaden the scope of the event and to reach as many people as possible within the community,” Angelopulos said.

This year’s event will also be dedicated in the memory of J.D. Robinson, fire chief of the Brasstown Volunteer Fire Department for 18 years before his line of duty death in August 2015.

Deadline to register for the 2016 Fontana Public Safety College is Feb. 5. For more information regarding the Public Safety College, contact Angelopulos at (828) 835-4251.
