About the FDNY Certificate of Fitness

A Fire Safety Director (FSD) is required in any commercial building or occupancy that obtained FDNY approval of the installation of a fire alarm system with two-way voice communication, and is required to provide a Fire Safety Director or other specified emergency preparedness staffing during regular business hours required by Chapter 4 of the Fire Code.

Any building classified as Group E (1968 Code) or Group B (2008 Code) by the NYC Department of Buildings, which has an occupancy of 100 people or more must have a Fire Safety Director on site during regular business hours. This includes office buildings, public or civil services buildings, and hotels. The Fire Safety Director must hold a valid Certificate of Fitness and is responsible for implementing a fire safety and evacuation plan, training fire safety personnel (FSP), and other duties related to fire safety and evacuation plans.

This Certificate of Fitness is valid only at a specific location and for the specific person to whom it is issued.
