Start Your NFIRS Report Out Right

  1. 1. 176 Incident Types for a little bit of EVERYTHING Kansas Fire Incident Reporting System
  2. 2. The Incident Type defines the entire report and controls which modules are open for completion. An accurate Fire Incident Report starts with choosing correctly. In ci dent Type /noun
  3. 3. Start by concentrating on the call you worked. How the call was dispatched doesn't always reflect the on-scene reality and should not be reported as the Incident Type. START
  4. 4. Incident Types are three digits long and organized into 9 categories. Using a cheat sheet organized into those categories will help quickly reduce Incident Types you don't need. Click here for the Kansas cheat sheet
  5. 5. Fire Hazard Service Call Good Intent Weather Special Explosion Rescue & EMS False Alarm 100's 200's 300's 400's 500's 600's 700's 800's 900's
  6. 6. The Fire Service wears many hats, often at the same scene. For calls where multiple Incident Types apply, use the lower number. For example, a car wreck (322-324) that also includes a car fire (130's) would be reported under the car fire (130's) because 130 is less than 322.
  7. 7. STOP If you are canceled en-route and do not make the scene, no matter what kind of call was dispatched you would only use one Incident Type: 611-Dispatched and Canceled En Route
  8. 8. If the call involved a fire, determine if the fire was "hostile" or controlled. All hostile fires will have an Incident Type that starts with a "1". Controlled burns are reported using the following: 631-Authorized Controlled Burning 632-Prescribed Fire (written plan on file) 561-Unauthorized Burning
  9. 9. You may think it's a shortcut to use "Other" Incident Types like 100-Other Fire or 900-Other Special Call because you'll be asked to complete less fields. While it may take you less time to complete the report, you have decreased both its accuracy and its worth. AVOID
  10. 10. Plus-1 codes add a fourth letter or number to the Incident Type and you can program them into your NFIRS software. For example, 611-1: Canceled En-Route to a Fire, 611-2: Canceled En-Route to EMS Call. You now have more specific codes allowing you further categorization. The NFIRS system isn't thrown by Plus-1 codes, allowing you to record a more specific code locally while not receiving any errors from the NFIRS system. Using Codes PLUS-1
  11. 11. Exposures Exposure fires do not always have the same Incident Type. If the original fire is a house (Incident Type 111-Building) that spreads to the grass field out back (143-Grass Fire), when you're working on the exposure report make sure the Incident Type matches that exposure. In some software packages, the "Add Exposure" button will bring the Incident Type from the original fire.
  12. 12. Follow these simple guidelines for choosing an Incident Type and you are well on your way to putting data quality issues to pasture.
