Knowing what’s going on or what’s going “up” around Jacksonville can be a full-time job. That’s why Action News Jax is launching our new segment focused on all things “what to do and where to go” in town.
Almost all of our schools have someone inside and on the ground whose number one priority is the safety of our kids. That person is a school resource officer. For Fernandina Beach High School, that person is officer Brian Evatt.
