Landlord Fined $1,500 for Missing FDNY Appointment to Test Sprinkler

LVT Number: #30555

FDNY issued a violation notice to landlord for failing to conduct a required equipment test. FDNY's inspector stated that landlord hadn't conducted a hydrostatic pressure test on the building's sprinkler system, which must be witnessed by a Fire Deparment representative. Landlord argued that she didn't receive sufficient notice of the test date and therefore wasn't able to appear at the building in time for FDNY inspection of testing. The ALJ ruled against landlord and fined her $1,500. Landlord appealed and lost.
