Course Description

This 2-day course teaches students how to use standardized forms to achieve uniformity in their incident and activity reporting. This training program is designed specifically to support local fire service organizations, and will assist them in providing data both to their management and to decision-makers, as well as to their State uniform fire reporting system. At a local level, the NFIRS data can be used to describe a community's fire program, support budget requests, improve decision-making for allocation of resources, assist in planning for future fire protection, help identify opportunities for scheduling nonemergency activities, evaluate code enforcement programs, and identify target audiences for public fire education programs.
