Fire Safety in New York City Public Housing and Apartment BuildingsOur History

Fire Life Safety Solutions USA, a New York City-based company, was founded by Richard Reaves in 2010. Richard has over 20-years of experience as an Emergency Action Plan Director, Fire Safety Director, and Security Manager. In 2008, Richard was hired as an independent contractor for an on-site fire safety training company, training tenants working in a high-rise commercial office buildings. Richard, along with a team of other trainers, has trained over 5,000 New York City commercial tenants in the basics of fire and non-fire emergencies, stairwell familiarization, fire prevention, and evacuation in accordance.

Richard began researching the various applicable, yet different fire safety laws in both high-rise commercial and high-rise residential buildings. Although residential buildings were being built higher and higher, many as tall as commercial office buildings, he realized that tenants in high-rise commercial buildings had more fire safety laws to protect them when compared to high-rise residential buildings. Richard also realized that residential buildings had a much higher risk factors and had their own set of fire hazards, risks, and vulnerabilities including: cooking, neglected and disconnected smoke alarms, children playing with matches (fire-play), smoking in bed, indoor-grown marijuana (cannabis) plants, burning of flame candles, a general lack of fire extinguishers, and a lack of understanding on how to prevent or respond to fire and non-fire emergencies.

Richard initially started Fire Life Safety Solutions USA (LLC) to specifically address the fire life safety needs of residential buildings and ensure that New York City residents could feel just as safe in their high-rise residential buildings. The company has expanded to include commercial, mixed-use, industrial and public buildings.
