The Fire Prevention and Life Safety team provides a variety of services for the UTSA community in our role as part of the Risk Management & Life Safety Division of EHSRM. Whether we are delivering safety training, reviewing construction plans for fire code compliance, or walking the campuses to visually inspect our inventory of over 1,600 fire extinguishers, we serve to extend opportunities for people at UTSA to develop an exit strategy to escape fire and other emergency situations.
UTSA is a rapidly growing institution, and the responsibilities of the Fire Prevention and Life Safety team grow and change with it. We maintain the safety of our instructional, residential, and support areas with:

The Fire Prevention and Life Safety Team provides safety services to special events on all three UTSA campuses.
