Pennsylvania Highlands Community College is expanding its public safety program in hopes of reaching more members of the community who are looking to be on the cutting edge in terms of emergency readiness training.

On June 9, college President Walter Asonevich and state Fire Commissioner Edward Mann will sign an agreement that will allow the college to become an educational training agency under the state Fire Academy system.

They will offer the academy’s comprehensive curriculum of basic and midlevel fire, rescue, hazardous material, officer development and fire department management courses to firefighters throughout the county and to local fire departments.
