Risk Management & Safety

The UNLV Fire and Life safety Office is responsible for maintaining and improving the level of Fire and Life Safety in, and around, the separate buildings and structures, on the 300+ acre campus and satellite locations, such as Shadow Lane Campus and Sam Boyd Stadium. This is accomplished through a comprehensive and ongoing series of inspections and training sessions. These activities are implemented and designed to conform to all State and local codes and regulations.

An integral and expanding field of responsibility for this office, is the planning and construction design review process, which involves our department in the pre-construction phase of the ever-increasing amount of expansion at UNLV.
