A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the City of New York, in relation to requiring the Fire Commissioner to send certain reports to the City Council.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1.  Section FC 104 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 26 for the year 2008, is amended by adding a new section 104.13 to read as follows:

104.13 Reporting to the City Council. The commissioner shall prepare and send a quarterly report, within seven business days of the end of each quarter, to  the  council  members, community  boards  and  borough presidents whose districts were previously served by any firehouse, any tour of a fire fighting unit or a fire fighting unit that was permanently closed, removed or relocated after January 1, 2009. Such report shall indicate the average response time for the quarterly period, as well as year to date, to all fire, medical and non-medical emergencies of the new first and second due fire fighting unit or units to the affected coverage area. In the event any average response time for the quarterly period is greater than six minutes, the report must include a detailed statement as to whether the department intends to seek to reduce the response time and, if so, how. For the purposes of this section, the term "permanent" shall mean a time period in excess of three months.

§2. This local law shall take effect immediately.
