Future Fire Safety Directors

Please review the Fire Department's official requirements AND Qualifying Experience to be appointed a Fire Safety Director. Click on FSD Requirements.

There are no requirements to take our course and the exam. However, the FD won't appoint anyone a Fire Safety Director unless they pass our course and have a minimum of 3 years of applicable experience in fire prevention, building service equipment, or a satisfactory combination.

To help you determine whether or not you possess the necessary "WORK RELATED EXPERIENCE" please review the Z-50 APPLICATION.

If you have specific questions about your qualifications, they might best be answered by the Fire Department's Certificate of Fitness Unit. You can call them during business hours at (718) 999-1988 or (718)999-1986.
