Fire Extinguisher Regulations
If you have been issued a fire extinguisher Notice of Violation, you are now faced with certain legal requirements and responsibilities. The process of satisfying the requirements includes filling applicable paperwork, performing the actual inspections, testing and recharging/replacement of the fire extinguishers and possibly scheduling a court appearance. FDNY Notice of Violations are comprised of -3- parts: the actual scope of work needed to be addressed; the ‘cure’ date; and the potential court appearance. A certificate of correction must be filed with the FDNY prior to the cure date. If not, you will need to appear in court.
The requirement for compliance is a form specific to the FDNY and is your agreement that an existing violation was presented and has now been complied with. The form must be notarized if all the items were corrected, or if only partial corrections have been satisfied as well as your plans for attending the scheduled hearings. Allstate Sprinkler Corporation is fully versed and knowledgeable on the intricacies of completing and filing paperwork accurately and quickly in order to minimize fines and avoid court appearances.
