Data Collection · NFIRS & Fire Fatality Reporting

Due to budget cuts, effective July 1, 2011, the State Fire Marshal’s Office will no longer provide support to the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS). Fire agencies may continue to submit their NFIRS data directly to the United States Fire Administration Data Center. To submit your data directly, visit the U.S. Fire Administration's webpage at:
