BENEFITS OF JPA MEMBERSHIP
The Northern California Regional Public Safety Training Authority (JPA) offers a one-of-a-kind unique approach to emergency training, preparedness, and response. Our 40-acre Campus at McClellan Business Park, Sacramento, Ca, offers facilities, training, and services that address the public safety needs and professional standards of local government.
The JPA boasts many specialized indoor and outdoor buildings and props in a training environment that is unlike any other in the region.
Member agencies offer a year-round calendar of training opportunities on a variety of public safety topics. All programs are timely, practical, and multi-disciplinary: fire, police, and homeland security.
Regional cooperation is the hallmark of the JPA. Member agencies are asked to combine their resources in support of the JPA. This philosophical approach of mutual aid extends beyond government and professional boundaries. The result is an organization governed by a Board of Directors who is dedicated to integrating training and providing members with an economical means of protecting the public interest.
Becoming a member of the JPA provides public safety organizations with representation on the JPA Board of Directors. In addition, members have access to state-of-the-art facilities and specialized services – all in a training environment that is unlike any other in the region. The annual membership dues represent an investment in a regional organization that is dedicated to ensuring emergency preparedness and response.
