Officials at Tyndall Air Force Base and leaders of the surrounding community announced new programs set to benefit the civilian and military community in Bay County, Florida.

The first is a medical training affiliation agreement which will allow staff at Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital Bay and military medics to work alongside one another to help share expertise.

Another program is a law enforcement driving course between Bay County Sheriff’s Office, Gulf Coast State College and the Tyndall Security Forces Squadron.

Two other initiatives include a joint mosquito eradication program in Bay Country and a military spousal employment program.

The final partnership project is implementing the SkillsBridge program which helps service members gain civilian work experience during their last 180 days of service, NBC reports.
