    Default Report Writing Training

    Does anyone have any good programs/books/videos to recommend or provide on effective fire incident reporting or first-in observation reports? Trying to make a more effective training for our company and command staff officers in the oh-so-favorite art of "paperwork!" Thanks for any recommendations.

    I have a NFIRS and a Patient Narrivtive template I use. I find that once you have a template, so you don't forget any important required lines, then you can focas on the content making it a quality report. Attached is my patient narritive, Patient Narrative Template.doc and my NFIRS nfirs.doc

    Thank you for those examples. That is a good base for starting.
