TFP COVID MandateSome facilities are able to address this by rapidly completing existing construction projects. Others will look to limit elective surgery and other procedures to open beds for COVID-19 patients. Still, others will look to converting offices, conference rooms, and any other available areas to bed space to help alleviate the rapid influx of COVID-19 patients.

Regardless of the solution to Gov. Cuomo’s directive, the need for appropriate and code-conforming Fire & Life Safety Services in these newly purposed areas will be paramount.
