A Partnership in Public Safety Training

The Klamath Basin Public Safety Training Center works in close collaboration with the emergency responders in Klamath and Lake Counties as well as other Oregon universities.  We are a coalition of education and public safety agencies working together to advance the education, training and skills of emergency responders to sustain viable communities. The partnership’s goals are to: 
  • Provide high quality training targeted to the needs of the regional public safety communities,
