The Law and Public Safety year 2 students perform job shadowing each Friday. Groups rotate through the dispatch center in Olive Branch, Olive Branch Police Department, and Olive Branch Fire Department. The students are exposed to different equipment, trainings, and tasks while job shadowing.

While at the OBFD, students receive 2 Fridays of introduction to fire, safety, and equipment use; during the 3rd Friday, students receive training at the OBFD training facility. During this training, students learn the proper use of PPE, search and rescue in a smoke filled building, and proper safety techniques.

If available, students will also be able to go out on call with the OBFD during their training.
