When I first came to North Carolina, I took a job at NCSU Public Safety. The hazardous materials, occupational health and safety, and fire protection were collectively known as "Life Safety Services", if I recall. We all worked under the campus police department for some reason.
I have been hearing about Superfund clean up of chemical dumps near Carter Finley Stadium since 1988. There is an article in the N&O today as if this was a new thing.
