Introduction:

This is the first installment of a series of rulemaking proceedings to repeal and repromulgate all Fire Department rules in effect on June 30, 2008 (“existing rules”).  The Fire Department is undertaking to repeal and repromulgate all of its existing rules in connection with the enactment of the new New York City Fire Code, which took effect on July 1, 2008.

The final new rules have been renumbered to parallel the new Fire Code sections.  For example, §113-01, relating to certificates of fitness and certificates of qualification, corresponds to Fire Code §113 (FC113), which governs such licenses.

As set forth in final rule 3 RCNY §202-01, “FC” refers to the Fire Code and “R” to the rules.  Italicized words refer to terms defined in the Fire Code or the rules.  Where no rules are being promulgated, pursuant to a section of the Fire Code, the corresponding section of the rules is marked “reserved.”
