By The Speaker (Council Member Johnson) and Council Members Deutsch, Kallos, Constantinides, Ampry-Samuel, Rivera, Miller and Borelli

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the fire department to conduct outreach and education to residential buildings

 

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 15-132 to read as follows:  

 

                     § 15-132 Residential education and outreach. a. The department shall make a good faith effort to directly contact owners and occupants of R-2 multiple dwellings to ensure that appropriate fire safety procedures, resources, and educational materials are in place. These efforts shall include, where appropriate, (i) ensuring compliance with fire code section 401.6 and applicable department rules relating to owners providing notice to occupants of fire safety measures, (ii) providing fire safety and fire prevention educational materials, and (iii) providing relevant training to staff at such dwellings.

                     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section 15-132 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by section one of this local law, is deemed repealed 5 years after it becomes law.
