Kudos to both the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and the Clark County Fire Dept. As you recall just a short time ago in July a fire broke out at the roof top pool at the Cosmopolitan. Had it not been for the additional training opportunities recently made available to the CCFD that incident could have been a TRAGEDY!
As a Las Vegas Native I remember all too well the day of the MGM fire. Every time i hear the words fire and Las Vegas Strip in the same sentence my heart sinks to my stomach. Both my husband and I had family members that were among the crews that were on the scene that day, it still brings tears to my eyes.
The Riviera Hotel & Casino was purchased by the LVCVA in February for the future expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center. While plans are being developed to make way for the Las Vegas Convention Center District, the property is being put to good use. Now, the facility is being utilized by multiple agencies across the United States as a training ground for emergency-response exercises.
PLEASE take a moment to watch this incredible video to see just how the LVCVA and our BRAVE Clark County Fire Fighters are working together to keep Sin City Safe!
