City Fire Department
Any building with a fire alarm system or other related system, such as a sub-system, is required to have an individual holding a Certificate of Fitness for Supervision of Fire Alarm Systems and Other Related Systems (S-95) physically present.
A fire alarm system is any system that automatically transmits a signal to a NYC Fire Department (FDNY) approved central station. Although a fire alarm system can be installed in any building, fire alarm systems are required in all commercial buildings, office buildings, hotels, motels, schools, shelters, hospitals, marinas, high-rise or low-rise apartment buildings, and all buildings specified in New York City Building Code section 309.1.
This Certificate of Fitness is valid only at a specific location and for the specific person to whom it is issued.
