City Gives Legionnaires Lessons at New Cooling Tower Academy

Posted on Tuesday November 28, 2017

The city is set to launch a new cooling tower academy to teach property owners and managers how to test for Legionella bacteria. The free, two-hour training will help them comply with Local Law 77 of 2015, the nation’s most  comprehensive law requiring owners to test their cooling towers for Legionella bacteria on a quarterly basis.

The Health Department’s free Cooling Tower Academy is meant to help building owners better understand the law’s requirements and reduce the risk for their communities. FirstService Residential organized the first trial session in August that drew nearly 400 attendees.
“With 120 cooling tower-equipped buildings in our management portfolio, FirstService Residential is keenly aware of the importance of properly training property managers and building operators to comply with the City’s cooling tower regulations in order to ensure the safety of our residents,” said Dan Wurtzel, president, FirstService Residential.
