Reports

  • New York State Governor's Task Force on Campus Fire Safety
    Report, published July 2000, calls for new construction standards, annual inspections, and student safety training.
  • USFA Releases Fire Risk Reports (3/11)
    The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has issued three special reports, part of its Topical Fire Research Series, examining the risk of death or injury from fire by various demographic, geographic, and socio-economic characteristics.
  • Report of the Fire, Building and Life Safety Code Applicability at the Riverview IRA (6/09)
    On Saturday March 21, 2009, a fire occurred in the Riverview Individualized Residential Alternative (IRA) operated by the Sunmount Developmental Disabilities Services Office (DDSO) and administered by the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), known as the Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities (OMRDD) at the time of the report, that led to the death of four residents and injury to one resident and two staff members. OPWDD requested the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control to conduct an independent review of the design, construction, code applicability and operational features of the IRA to ensure they met applicable fire and life safety codes and to verify operation of fire protection systems. This Report outlines the findings of that review with identified code violations, items warranting review and recommendations for future discussion and consideration.
  • Report of the New York City New York State Task Force on Building and Fire Safety (6/12)
    The State of New York and the City of New York worked together on the New York City/New York State Task Force on Building and Fire Safety, pursuant to Chapter 283 of the Laws of 2010, to examine the status of building and fire safety issues related to State property in the City. This collaboration resulted in the development of this Report with its finding and recommendations, as required by law. The Report addresses the code applicability, compliance and fire safety issues, related to State buildings in the City, intended to increase the safety of the public and firefighters and are the result of careful evaluation.
