To promote public safety and code compliance, the Code Development Unit has issued and periodically updates the New York City Fire Code Guide. The Fire Code Guide provides guidance, including explanations, interpretations and interim guidelines, in the form of responses to Frequently Asked Questions.
From time to time, the Code Development Unit issues detailed guidance documents with respect to Fire Code compliance obligations, typically to address urgent public safety matters. This includes guidance with respect to temporary COVID-related facilities and other COVID-related operations, and building operation and maintenance during the COVID emergency.
Fire Prevention Bulletins are issued by Bureau of Fire Prevention units to clarify the requirements for design and installation document applications; inspections, witnessed tests and related filing requirements; other Fire Code-related materials.
