The FDNY’s most recent rule proposal would change the content and delivery of your annual Fire Safety Guides.
The 2014 Fire Code overhauled Chapter 4, expanding information on emergency planning and preparedness – most importantly, increasing the scope of this category to include non-fire related emergencies.
To bring current policies in line with the code release, the FDNY has proposed a new rule for the existing Fire Safety Guide. If passed, a new document (The Fire and Emergency Preparedness Guide, or FEP) would replace it.
Here’s some of the things we’ll help your team plan for if the rule is passed:
It’s worth saying that this proposed rule won’t change the posted Fire Safety Notices, which have similar content.
You can read the proposed law in its entirety (including the revamped Guide language) here. If you’d like, you can also comment on the proposed law online, or attend the public hearing at Metro Tech Center on July 17th.
We’ll keep you posted on the accepted changes, when they’ll go into effect, and how SiteCompli can help manage these adjustments going forward.
