A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to comprehensive tracking of firefighting response times.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1. Chapter one of title 15 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 15-129 to read as follows:
§ 15-129 Tracking of firefighting response times. a. The department shall track the duration of time between a report to a 911 operator where firefighting response is deemed necessary and arrival at the suspected fire of the following:
(1) First responding firefighting unit;
(2) First responding engine company;
(3) First responding ladder company; and
(4) First complete contingent, consisting of a ladder company and an engine company.
For the purposes of this section only, "arrival" shall mean arrival at the door of the building where a fire is suspected; provided, however, that if a fire is suspected at a particular apartment or floor of a building, "arrival" shall mean arrival at the door of such apartment or arrival at such floor.
b. For any incident where the fire department applies water to a fire, the department shall track the duration of time between the report to the 911 operator and application of water to the fire.
c. The commissioner shall submit a quarterly report to the council, detailing the average response times and range in response times for each measure required above, for the city and for borough.
§2. This local law shall take effect 90 days after enactment.
