-- A new amendment to Title 3 of the Rules of the City of New York, Section 113, will now require that all Fire Life Safety Directors be trained in Active Shooter response. The new amendment affects all FSD and FSD/EAP certificate holders (F-58) and requires they obtain a certificate of fitness. The new rule will likely take effect in a few weeks, and will require 12,000 Fire Life Safety Directors to attend a mandatory four hour class on active shooter and medical emergency response. All Fire and Life Safety Directors must complete this training by March 31, April 2017. FLS Directors will also be required to take and pass an exam.
Global Security Group, Inc. (GSG) has been teaching Fire and Life Safety (FLS) to office and hotel personnel in New York State since 2001. We are an accredited school with a convenient midtown office location and a diverse range of course offerings. Our instructors have unique experience not offered by any other schools, particularly with respect to Active Shooter response training. GSG instructors are former US Federal Agents and senior officers from the NYPD and are highly regarded experts in training both law enforcement officers and civilians in Active Shooter response. GSG trainers have provided Active Shooter training to thousands of individuals in the private sector in New York City and across the United States. No other provider of Fire and Life Safety Training in New York City can match that claim. In fact, most Fire Safety instructors who will be teaching the Active Shooter protocols promulgated by the FDNY will be simply reading slides from a PowerPoint and have no independent experience with respect to the subject. Our instructors are actual experts with real-world experience.
Global Security Group, Inc. consultants have written the Fire and Life Safety plans for over 1,000 buildings in New York City, and we actively train building staff in emergency action procedures including Active Shooter response.
