fire safety regulations

Posted by Cathleen Jordan on January 13, 2001 at 15:29:39:

We are told that everyone must now have fire safety regulations posted inside our apartments. I think this is true, but I want to know what the law says about one's choices regarding where they are posted. (On the living room wall? On the front door? Anywhere in the apartment?) Also, must this regulation sheet (similar to what one sees in hotel rooms, but red lettering on white) be pasted on the wall or door or can it be hung somewhere in a frame?

I live in a Manhattan 20-apartment brownstone. Most apartments (all rentals) are rent stabilized, but my husband and I are "statutory tenants," which is similar to rent control, and therefore we have not had a written lease after the first one (in 1972). The building was built around 1910, I'd guess, and renovated in 1972 under the J-51 tax abatement provision.
