Public safety training facility opens at Martin Community College

MARTIN COUNTY, NC (WITN) Martin Community College officially opened a new facility to help train members of public safety.

People gathered Thursday for a ribbon cutting for the new Public Safety Training Facility at Martin Community College.

The facility will be used mainly to train members of fire services and related fields, but police will also be able to train there.
