NMSU reminds students, community that all fireworks are off limits on university land

While New Mexico State University encourages the community to enjoy a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend, please remember that use of fireworks on any land owned by NMSU is not allowed.

"The university policy prevents use of all fireworks on university land," said NMSU Fire Chief Darrell Smith. "The policy also restricts building or using an open fire on university land unless an appropriate permit has been obtained through the university fire department."

NMSU's fire prevention policy establishes fire restrictions for the university to include not only the main campus, but also university-owned lands east of Interstate 25, the Horticulture Farm, the Horse Center and the Leyendecker Plant Science Farm.

Anyone with a concern about fireworks on campus should call 575-646-3311. If you see a fire, get to a safe place and call 911.
