Quick question that I may have missed somewhere else: how long do you have to be a NFIRS reporting department to be considered in good standing or compliant when it comes to grants? My volunteer department stopped doing NFIRS reports for a few years. We have since picked back up (2010-present), but I didn't know how far back you had to be compliant to be able to check the "YES" box.
As long as you are reporting you can answer "Yes".
What if you have a gap in your reporting? Coem to find out we reported in 2010, did not in 2011 and are now reporting again in 2012. Is the page still there wanting 3 years worth of reporting data?
