Training & Job Safety

Run. Hide. Fight.

At the City of San Juan, it is important that our employees are always in a safe work environment and that they receive the proper training to be prepared for any given situation. We would like to thank the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department for holding an Active Shooter/Critical Incident Training for our staff.
