Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1.  Chapter 1 of title 15 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 15-133 to read as follows:

                        § 15-133 Youth education and outreach. a. The department, in consultation with the department of education, shall develop and implement a plan for educating both children and parents about fire safety and prevention. Such plan shall include but need not be limited to public service announcements, outreach in public and non-public schools about common fire dangers for children and preventative measures to be taken by parents.

                     b. Beginning January 31, 2019 and annually thereafter, the department shall electronically submit to the mayor and the speaker of the council and post on its website a report describing the activities taken pursuant to this section during the previous calendar year.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of fire may take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date. Subdivision b of section 15-133 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by section one of this local law, is deemed repealed 5 years after it becomes law.
