Improved compliance of public assembly safety conditions City-wide

The inspectors in Public Assembly monitor compliance in high-occupancy and high-risk places of assembly. The Unit members participate in the Multi-Agency Response to Community Hotspots (MARCH) and have worked tirelessly to improve quality of life, compliance and first responder support.

For the past five years, they have been key contributors, implementing an ambitious partnership with the Departments of Buildings and Consumer Affairs to improve inter-agency communication, prototype automated data exchange and set the foundation for the digital blueprint program.

This unit is responsible for monitoring more than 12,000 permitted places of assembly, such as restaurants, cabarets and movie theatres. Their efforts are a key component of Fire Prevention’s goal to provide validated, vital information and floor plans to first responders.

As a direct result of their efforts, there was a 21 percent increase in the Department of Buildings Public Assembly permits. More than 2886 obsolete locations were identified.

For improving compliance in these places of assembly, the above-listed individuals are presented with the Moe Ginsberg Award.
