Utah Fire Incident Reporting System

The United States Fire Administration (USFA) is mandated by law to collect information on fires, relying on the nation’s fire service to meet this requirement through the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS).

NFIRS 5.0 addresses the fire service’s need for a system that accounts for the full range of fire department activities. New technology is available to create a system that is easier to use and less expensive for states to operate. States require a flexible system that allows them to collect their own information while participating in the national standard for fire reporting. There is significant interest from states, national fire organizations, public educators, fire data analysts, the media, and others for information not available in the current system; NFIRS 5.0 aims to fill this information gap.

The web-based version of the NFIRS software can be found here:

The system is modular in design. Data is collected for all incident types in a basic module. Additional modules for structure fires, firefighter casualties, civilian casualties, hazardous materials, wildland fires, apparatus, and personnel are completed as necessary. The apparatus, personnel, hazmat, and wildland fire modules are optional.
