Fire Alarm Remote Video Inspection Availability

Effective December 1st, 2020, the FDNY Bureau of Fire Prevention is launching a pilot program in hopes of facilitating the curing of certain Fire Alarm Inspection Notices of Defects.

The program, Remote Video Inspections (RVI) will be an option for the re-inspection of previously issued Notices of Defects. It will use video conferencing so an Inspector will not need to be physically present, which will serve to increase efficiency and protect all parties by reducing in-person contact.

To apply for RVI, fill out a B-45 Inspection Request and select the appropriate checkbox.

For more information or assistance contact the FDNY Customer Service Center at 311 or email
