National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS)

Fire Incident Reporting: SPS 314.01(11) requires reporting of all fires within 60 days of the incident through NFIRS. We urge each department to follow the requirement within NFPA 1: 1.11.3 to report every incident that is encountered, not just fire incidents to give a clear picture of what you do as a department, keep your account active, and assist with grant requirements.

Export/Import Process - Vendor Software
NFIRS Overview If you are not utilizing the NFIRS data entry tool (software) or the new internet-based Data Entry Browser Interface (DEBI) system, you must complete the export process within your vendor software (Firehouse, Fire Programs, etc.) and then complete the Bulk Import process from the NFIRS website in order to complete your incident submission. If you are using a vendor software and not completing the Bulk Import Process your incidents are not reaching the state or national levels.  If you need additional assistance with the Bulk Import Process please contact
NFIRS mailbox.
