PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - We know the importance of having enough well-trained first responders in a community, but all of those jobs depend on a public safety system to function well.

Gulf Coast’s Public Safety Division wants to let students that may be interested know about what the public safety programs have to offer. They teach classes that lead you to the following degrees: Bachelor of Applied Science Degree, Associate of Arts Degree & Associate of Science Degree.

Public Safety Division courses in the EMS Academy, Fire Academy, Law Enforcement Academy, and Corrections Academy on the North Bay campus and programs on the Panama City campus also lead to certificates, certifications, licenses and an applied technical diploma and college credit certificates.
