Fire Safety Directors is pleased to announce our Winter 2014 Fire Safety Director Training, Emergency Action Plan Director Class, Building Operation Maintenance and Recordkeeping Training, and Construction Site Fire Safety Manager Schedules
Fire Safety Director Training
Since its adoption in 1973, New York City Local Law 5 has mandated that all Class B and R office buildings have an FSD in the building at all times during business hours or at any time that the building is occupied by more than 100 persons above or below the first floor or more than 500 total in the building. The FSD is responsible for implementing the building’s Fire Safety Plan in the event of a fire or smoke condition. The position of Fire Safety Director (FSD) is an integral part of the Fire Department of the City of New York’s (FDNY) strategy to ensure the safety of the occupants of high rise office buildings. The procedure to become an FSD begins with taking a 20 hour course of instruction from a school accredited by the FDNY. Our Training Academy has been accredited to provide this training by the FDNY and offers classes throughout the year.

Emergency Action Plan Director Class
Local Law 26 of 2004 required that the Fire Commissioner adopt standards, procedures and requirements for the orderly evacuation of occupants from any office building, including evacuation of persons necessitated by explosion, biological, chemical or hazardous material incidents or releases, natural disasters or other emergency, or the threat thereof.
The law requires that owners of office buildings develop procedures for sheltering in place, in-building relocation, partial evacuation and full evacuation of the building, in response to various emergency scenarios. There are specific guidelines and requirements for the form and content of the Emergency Action Plan. The final rule requires the designation of a Fire Safety EAP Director to be authorized to implement the Emergency Action Plan.
What is an emergency action plan? (Fire Department rule 3 RCNY 6-02)
An emergency action plan describes the actions employees should take to ensure their safety if a fire or other emergency situation occurs. Well developed emergency plans and proper employee training (such that employees understand their roles and responsibilities within the plan) will result in fewer and less severe employee injuries and less structural damage to the facility during emergencies. A poorly prepared plan, likely will lead to a disorganized evacuation or emergency response, resulting in confusion, injury, and property damage.
