The Fire Safety and Evacuation Plans provide the procedures for the evacuation of the occupants during a fire emergency. The plans also provide first responders with an understanding of the building’s fire protection systems, layout and contents of the building, means of egress, fire hazards, and identification of key contacts during an emergency.
Section 401.3.6.1 of the 2014 Fire Code provides plan requirements of the 2008 Fire Code remain in effect until new rules are adopted to implement the emergency preparedness plan requirements of the 2014 Fire Code.
Fire Safety and Evacuation Plans are required for the occupancies and buildings as set forth in Section 404.2.1 of the 2008 Fire Code.
Section 404.1 of the 2008 Fire Code requires the owner of the premises to prepare the plan according to Section 404.2.1 as described in the Fire Department rule 3 RCNY 404-01.
