HPD recently proposed rules to clarify what should be included on notices informing residents about emergency procedures in case of a gas leak. The proposal includes details about how this information can be combined with smoke detector and carbon monoxide notices, sample notices, and outlines what records must be kept for smoke detector devices and carbon monoxide alarms.
Please note that this proposed rule has not yet been finalized – it’s possible that changes may be made as a result of the public hearing and comment period. The hearing is scheduled from 10 AM to 11 AM on August 7th in HPD’s Hearing Room (100 Gold Street, 5th Floor, Room 5-R1). You may register to speak in advance or immediately before the hearing begins. You may also submit comments to HPD via fax, e-mail, or online.
