Overview of NYC Fire Guard Training

As you are taking your security guard training, you can at the same time train for your fire guard certification. Fire guard primary duty to prevent fires or to notify the Fire Department by calling 911.  The Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY) administers and enforces building fire code policies to promote fire safety and prevention.  Certified by the FDNY, licensed fire guards play an important role in enforcing building fire code policies and promoting public safety.   Different types of buildings and settings where fire guards are deployed require different types of knowledge, so the FDNY has developed different certifications.

An individual who wants to become a licensed fire guard in any of these areas must first past a test administered by the FDNY.  Each license has its own exam.  Star Security Training provides a 3- hour test prep course to help individuals prepare and pass 6 tests that pertain most to the responsibilities of security guards.

All exams are given at the FDNY’s Public Certification Unit located on the first floor at  9 Metro Tech Center in Brooklyn .  A $25 new application fee is required for each certification.  Renewals need to be made every 3 years ($5 fee).  Generally, applications are reviewed and processed within 1-2 days.
