RULES OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK - FINAL RULEMAKING NOTICES ... As set forth in 3 RCNY §202-01, “FC” refers to the Fire Code and “R” to the rules...3 RCNY §40802 ... preparation and distribution of residential fire safety guides (formerly denominated “residential fire safety plans”) and residential fire safety notices). The Company was formed to provide fire safety training and written plans, guides and notices for residential buildingstructures as mandated by the Fire Department of the City of New York City (FDNY).

According to the New Rule, effective in 2004, every residential building (J2)—including cooperative and condominiums—must prepare a fire safety plan, following a model by the Fire Department. This plan must be distributed annually to all of the occupants and service employees of the building.

According to an expert in creating high-rise safety and fire programs, he asked “Why is it that I am protected in my office (commercial) environment?” In a commercial building tenants or workers are usually there for approximately 7-8 hours, but my wife and children are not protected, in a cooperative or condominium apartment (residential building), they are asleep for many hours; it is more important to be protected in those cases.”

Fires that affect our homes are often the most tragic and the most preventable. While the loss of our possessions can be upsetting, the physical and psychological injuries fires inflict are often far more devastating. It is a sad fact, but nearly three-quarters (72%) of all civilian fire injuries occur as a result of fires in residential buildings—our homes. Civilian fire injuries, by definition, involve people who are injured as a result of a fire.

These injuries generally occur from activities of fire control, attempting rescue, or escaping from the dangers of the fire. In 2005, someone was injured in a residential building fire every 39 minutes. The latest available data for Residential Building Fire Trends (2007-2011)--National Estimates for residential building fires in 2011, the most recent year data are available, are; Fires: 364,500; Deaths: 2,450; injuries 13,900 and Dollar Loss: $6,651,400,000 (in billions).
