Fire/Life Safety:
Overview

No high-rise building is safe and secure without a fully-compliant, properly-implemented fire/life safety program in place. Mulligan Security has a professional team of retired high-ranking officers of the FDNY, These officers oversee, develop and conduct all training and drills, and ensure that the proper documentation is maintained, submitted, and approved. In fact, our program is so complete, that Mulligan is the first security firm in the New York City Metro area to receive SAFETY Act designation as a “Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology” by the Department of Homeland Security. Mulligan offers the most complete fire/life safety program your facility or high-rise building will ever need.

Since 1973, New York City’s Local Law 5 has required high-rises and other heavily-populated buildings to develop fire safety plans, conduct fire drills, designate tenants for specific roles in the case of an emergency, and keep records of these activities. After the events of September 11, 2001, New York City passed and implemented Local Law 26, which mandates similar requirements for non-fire related emergencies such as:

  • Acts of Terrorism
  • Explosives and Explosions
  • Bomb Threats and Suspicious Packages
  • Civil Disturbances
  • Severe Weather
  • Utility Failures and Emergencies
  • Criminal Acts
  • Emotionally Disturbed Person (EDP)
  • Attacks using Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)
  • Nuclear (Dirty Bomb)
  • Biological Threats, Occurrences and Exposure
  • Chemical Threats, Occurrences and Exposure
  • Radiological Threats, Occurrences and Exposure

The law mandates that building owners develop an Emergency Action Plan (EAP), create and execute training and drills, and maintain records for review by the FDNY.

Mulligan provides a three-phase plan for complying with NYC laws and keeping tenants safe:
