NYC Fire Department(FDNY)

New York City FDNY protects the lives and property of New York City residents and visitors. The Department advances public safety through its fire prevention, investigation and code enforcement. As part of enforcing the fire safety code, violations are issued to notify the respondent of a condition that effects public safety.

The FDNY issues a variety of violations, ranging from violations that do not carry a fine, to criminal summonses which can lead to an arrest warrant. Most violations issued are simply an order to correct a violating condition. You may avoid a penalty altogether if the violation is not marked hazardous and you file the certificate of correction within the time frame allowed. A notice of violation from the FDNY may allege more than one violating rule. Therefore you may wish to certify correction for the rule individually if some rules can't be corrected. Each rule carries a separate penalty if found in violation. Some violations qualify for a hearing at the Environmental Control Board (ECB), where you may present a defense to dismiss the violation. The presiding Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) may accept testimony and evidence and forward their recommendation to the Commissioners' designee for final decision and order.

If you are unaware of any violations associated with a specific property, please feel free to contact us.
