South Texas College to Host 5th Annual Public Safety Expo November 28

 

Law Enforcement and Fire Science programs at South Texas College will be hosting its 5th Annual Public Safety and First Responders Expo on Tuesday Nov. 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will take place at STC’s Business and Technology Campus located at 3700 W. Military Highway in McAllen. The expo is free and open to the public.

The expo seeks to provide students and the general public with valuable information about the college’s public safety programs including fire science, law enforcement program, emergency medical technician (EMT) and criminal justice.

“The purpose of the expo is to showcase to the community the public safety programs offered by South Texas College,” said Victor Valdez, Public Safety Instructor at South Texas College.  “We will have representatives from the police and fire academies, as well as the EMT and Criminal Justice Programs. It also allows the local law enforcement, fire department, and first responders to showcase their agencies in hopes of recruiting future candidates. This is the perfect opportunity to learn about the programs STC has to offer as well as meet your local police and fire departments, and EMS providers.”

The expo will be comprised of informational booths sponsored by numerous federal, state, and local agencies including McAllen PD, Hidalgo Co. Constable’s Office Precinct 4, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife.

“We are going to have police departments here doing some recruiting and showing what they have, and some of the things they do, as well as how it is to become a police officer,” Valdez said. “Then, we are going to showcase the fact that STC has a law enforcement program that can help students get into a particular police agency. So it brings to the forefront the public service side of what we have here in this area as well as what the college has to offer to help people go into those particular fields.”
