This legislation would allow the Council to identify how FDNY’s needs are changing from year to year due to rezoning and to potentially address any disconnect between satisfaction of the needs FDNY has expressed in the past and its current needs.

No later than February 1 of each year, the department, in consultation with the department of city planning, shall submit to the council a report, as set forth in subdivision c of this section, stating  the potential impact of certain rezonings that occurred during the previous fiscal year on the services the department provides,  in terms of fire protection and emergency medical services, in areas for which certain rezonings were approved in the previous fiscal year.

c. Such report shall consider rezonings for which the department provided input in the city environmental quality review process and shall include for such rezonings, but need not be limited to, the following information:

1. The rezoned area, including the borough, formal and commonly known names of the area, major streets and avenues covered by the rezoning and the total area in square miles covered by the rezoning;

2. For each such rezoned area, a brief description of the type of rezoning that took place, including any substantial change in zoning district classification; and

3. For each such rezoned area, the potential impact of such rezoning on the services the department  provides, as provided by the department in the city environmental quality review process, in terms of fire protection personnel and staffing, equipment, vehicles and stations, where applicable, with a separate category including information on the impact of such rezoning on the services the department provides  in terms of emergency medical services personnel and staffing, equipment, vehicles and station locations, where applicable.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately.
