Utah Fire Incident Reporting System
The United States Fire Administration (USFA) is mandated by law to collect information on fires and it relies on the nation’s fire service to meet that 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 make a new system that is easier to use and less expensive for states to operate. States need a flexible system that will easily allow them to collect their own information yet still participate as part of the national standard for fire reporting. There is a great deal of interest from states, national fire organizations, public educators, fire data analysts, the media, and others about information that simply is not available in the current system, NFIRS 5.0 will fill the information gap.
The web based version of NFIRS software can be found here: https://nfirs.fema.gov
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.
