A statement from Steve Hill, president and CEO of the LVCVA
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the UNLV Campus Police, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Clark County Fire Department and emergency management services, and the countless other first responders whose swift actions at UNLV today were nothing short of heroic.
I also want to thank the resort partners who have offered rooms to students who have been displaced, and to our partners like the National Finals Rodeo who responded with sensitivity and have canceled or postponed events in light of this tragedy. I’m also grateful to the team at the Las Vegas Convention Center for facilitating the County’s reunification center, which will remain open until further notice.
Las Vegas is a tourism destination, but at our core, we are a community. A community of people who live here, work here, and won’t be defined by the senseless tragedy we experienced today. We stand united as a community that will heal, support one another, and emerge stronger.
Together, we will continue to be #VegasStrong.
