National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS)

Vermont Fire Department Reporting 

The Vermont Fire Incident Reporting System (VFIRS) is operated by the Division of Fire Safety to better understand the fire problem in Vermont. Fire reporting is required by State Statute. Each fire department is required to submit their emergency incident data reports to the State Fire Marshal’s Office in accordance with Vermont Statute 20 V.S.A. Section 2833.

VFIRS is an integral part of the larger National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS)

The Division of Fire Safety maintains and manages the data collection for the Vermont portion of the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS). The Vermont data is entered directly in NFIRS to help develop a picture of the fire problem throughout the United States. VFIRS is a critical component in the United States Fire Administration's goal to "Fight Fires with Facts"
