Safety Advocates for Tents & Special Events

SAFTSE is presenting a workshop 11/2/17 at the City Hall in North Las Vegas, NV November 2nd, 2017
titled” Getting the Code Official and Special Event Partners Under the Same Tent.” 
We cannot stress the importance of forming a collaborative safety model between the Code Enforcement Offical and special event partners. Begin, by creating a permitting process which fulfills the administrative scope guidelines for inspection, enforcement, and reasonable expectations. Once we have accomplished this process we have created a sustainable path to life safety.
