Local public safety officials will soon have help paying for the in-service safety training that is critical to the life-or-death services they provide. The 200 Club of Wake County has announced a donation of $10,000 to the Wake Tech Foundation to support training for law enforcement, fire safety, and emergency services personnel who live or work in Wake County. The 200 Club, a group of citizens dedicated to supporting the families of fallen public safety officers, announced the donation at its 10th anniversary luncheon at Wake Tech’s Public Safety Education Campus.


Wake Tech provided in-service training for more than 5,000 professionals in law enforcement, fire safety, and emergency medical services last year.

The 200 Club of Wake County is made up of business, political and community leaders who want local public safety officers to know their community appreciates and supports the difficult jobs they do every day, the risks they take, and the protection they provide.
