Fire Safety Director Course F-58

Fire Safety DirectorThe Fire Safety Director Course offered by Radiant is a comprehensive course that prepares participants to become Fire Safety Directors in New York City. The course is designed to examine every aspect of fire protection management in high-rise buildings and hotels. It is an invaluable tool for individuals who dedicate their careers to the protection of people and property from fire in the built environment. Commercial high-rises, hotels and motels require certified Fire Safety Directors as mandated by New York City Local Laws.

There have been many spectacular high-rise fires in the United States. The Triangle Shirtwaist Company fire in Lower Manhattan in 1911 is perhaps the most defining structural fire in New York City and was a catalyst for legislative reform to protect building occupants. Unfortunately, 146 people lost their lives in this fire. In 1970, the One New York Plaza fire in Lower Manhattan killed two people and injured 35 occupants. The First Interstate Bank fire in Los Angeles in 1988 claimed the life of an engineer and economic losses of $50 million. In 1991, the One Meridian Plaza fire in Philadelphia resulted in the death of three firefighters. The Bank of New York fire at 280 Park Avenue in 1993 cost property damage estimated at more than $10 million. In 2003, the Cook County Administration fire in Chicago claimed the lives of six occupants who were overcome by smoke in the stairwells. Undoubtedly, the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 was a focusing catastrophic event that caused the death of 2,752 people and the destruction of the famous Twin Towers. These fires prove that no one is immune from the devastating personal and economic impact of high-rise fires. Lessons learned from local and national fires are discussed.

The Consolidated Fire Safety Director Course introduces all aspects of fire safety in high-rise buildings and hotels and discusses the theory and design of automated fire suppression systems and their role in the detection and suppression of smoke and fire. The elements and principles of Local Law 5 of 1973 are explored and discussed extensively. The interaction between occupants, fire protection systems and construction technologies are examined.

This class is open to all individuals interested in learning what to do in the event of fire emergencies in high-rise buildings and hotels. The Certificate of Fitness granted by the FDNY to those participants who successfully complete the course and pass the tests is the F-58.
