National Fire Information Reporting System
Last year, fires killed over 3,000 people, injured more than 15,000 and caused an estimated $11.5 billion in damage.
Over a five-year period, the cause of ignition in the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) was unknown in almost
three out of every five home fire deaths, according to the United States Fire Administration and the National Fire Protection
Association. Recognizing the reporting gap in NFIRS, the National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM) has launched a free,
online training program for the fire service, “Understand Your Role in Fire Incident Data,” available at NASFM’s training portal
This online course takes approximately one hour. Since the training program is self-guided, it can be
easily incorporated into recruit training at a fire station level and used by full-time, call and volunteer fire departments.
