    Default Run Reports

    I was wondering if another Volunteer Department could lend us their "Fire Run Report" file, so we can alter it to fit our vol. department.

    Right now, we only enter Time-Date-Type of run-Run Number-Location..

    We ARE IN BAD shape when it comes to a good way to LOG each run..
    We need a little help..
    Thanks!

    E-mailed ours to you, hope you got it....it prints out as 2 pages but we normally print it front and back of 1 page.

    Now that's our Incident Report that we mostly use to gather information at the scene of fire incidents. We don't fill that one out for all calls. Back at the station we have a "Callout Attendance Log" that is filled out for every call...I'll see if I can find that one for you....

    Default Question

    Why are you not using NFIRS for all runs? It's easy to do with the software available. You should be reporting every run to the state who should be sending them to the feds.

    The police got their act together years ago with the uniform crime reporting system. Time for the fire service to do the same.

    We can't state with any certainty how many fire departments, how many firefighters or how many calls we respond to in this country. In today's world their is no excuse for any department not using NFIRS.

    Stay safe,

    We do use NIFIRS and everyone else should too. We started out keeping blank NFIRS forms in the clipboard. Too complicated and too many codes for most incidents. We don’t have so many fires that we forget if it was a single story or multi-story, or what floor the fire started on. The Assistant Chief does all of the NFIRS reports. If he has a question he usually just calls whoever had command.

    Our sheet is for collecting the basic information and who responded to the call.

    Better yet...

    This report has most of the basic information you'll need for your NFIRS report, in a more field-usable format than the blank NFIRS.......You can figure out what code to apply when you enter the NFIRS in the computer.

    Thanks Chief,

    Wasn't looking for it, but have used it to modify the one that we have been using. We are now using one sheet for use on all calls. Have added separate sheets for fire/mva and medical. All together they help us fill out our software based fire incident reports. I was planning on doing this from scratch, but your sheet saved me a load of time. Thanks again.
    Just someone trying to help! (And by the way....Thanks for YOUR help!)

    Aggressive does not have to equal stupid.

    I agree with the use of NFIRS for ALL runs. There has been discussion about how unreliable and contradictory fire stats are, depending on what agency is collecting them. HOwever, there is a database of reported criminal activity published that includes information from UCR, which is subscribed to by an overwhelming majority of law enforcement agencies. When we go to the table with issues like funding, one of the major obstacles we have to overcome is the lack of a true picture of the fire problem in the US. The reason for this is FD's thinking they have valid reasons not to use NFIRS. They don't.

    Any incident report should also include a narrative section that is filled out for every call. Sometimes it would be one sentence long. But trust me, there will come a day in court, either civil or criminal, either as a defendant or on the State's side, that you will be glad that you did.

    the one we use at our firehouse was developed by a guy on our first aid squad, he also made the program for the other fire dept in town as well as the police department, and also makes something for the state police. his product info is here: its a really great program: http://www.bkinnovations.com/
