FEMA USFA NFIRS 2013 Fire Incident & Cause Data

The 2013 Fire Causes & Incident data was provided by the U.S. Fire Administration’s (USFA) National Fire Data Center’s (NFDC’s) National Fire Incident Reporting System. The National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) is a reporting standard that fire departments use to uniformly report on the full range of their activities, from fire to emergency medical services (EMS) to equipment involved in the response. NFIRS is the world’s largest, national, annual database of fire incident information, and comprises about 75 percent of all reported fires that occur annually. NFIRS is a voluntary tool with two objectives: to help State and local governments develop fire reporting and analysis capability for their own use, and to obtain data that can be used to more accurately assess and subsequently combat the fire problem at a national level.
