FDNY Office of Community Affairs. Fire and Life Safety Resources

The FDNY Office of Community Affairs plays a critical role in the Department’s mission of advancing public safety by strengthening community relationships throughout the five boroughs that enhance fire prevention and life safety education efforts. FDNY Community Affairs partners with community leaders, civic and faith based organizations, block associations and schools with the goal of continually educating and increasing public awareness of fire, life safety and disaster preparedness, and the enforcement of public safety codes. With the COVID-19 pandemic having disrupted the ability to provide traditional in-person outreach, Community Affairs has transitioned to utilizing digital platforms to ensure a continuity in public outreach.

Some common topics include: cooking safety, smoking safety, “Plan Your Escape” tips, residential apartment safety, smoke and carbon monoxide alarm best practices, fire safety for seniors and children, natural gas safety, safe use of electrical items, fire extinguishers use, fire safety for Jewish observances, winter and seasonal fire safety, and many others.

3. Host a Virtual Smoke Alarm Installation Registration Event

New York City residents can get a free smoke alarm installation appointment from the FDNY at coordinated virtual events throughout the City. At a virtual event, constituents would participate in a presentation highlighting residential fire safety tips and receive a link to register for free smoke alarm installations performed by FDNY members. Following health/safety guidelines, FDNY has instituted strict protocol which include symptom checks, social distancing and PPE, to ensure safety of members and public receiving alarms. After your request is submitted, you will be contacted by the American Red Cross to schedule an appointment for your smoke alarm to be installed in your home. It will be installed by volunteers who can be identified by FDNY attire.
