systems, fire pumps; fire protection water supplies, fire mains, fire alarm systems, and special extinguishing systems.


The impairment coordinator or a trained and knowledgeable person designated by the building owner should begin conducting a fire watch in the area where the fire protection systems are out-of-service. After 4 hours of an out of service condition, such patrols shall only be conducted by fire guards holding the F-01 certificate of fitness


F-02 holders are qualified to work in shelters with homeless occupants on a daily basis and to perform hourly patrols, and are additionally qualified to perform fire watch in an out-of-service situation.


FDNY may require at least one F-03/04 assembly fire safety personnel in the premises where the Certificate of Occupancy indicates that 75 or more members of the public may gather indoors or 200 or more may gather outdoors.
