Since its adoption in 1973, New York City Local Law 5 has mandated that all Class E office buildings have a Fire Safety Director (FSD) in the building at all times during business hours or at any time that the building is occupied by more than 100 persons. 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 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.
