The Connecticut Fire Incident Reporting Systems (CFIRS) is a statewide incident reporting system that collects, compiles, analyzes and distributes statistical information reported by the Connecticut Fire Service from Fire Marshals and Fire Departments throughout the state.  The CFIRS complies with Connecticut General Statute 29-303 and is a resource for state and local government, private agencies and organizations, the media and the public.

The data collected by CFIRS is based on the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) that all Fire Departments and Fire Marshals must use to document all incidents they respond to. Reports are submitted to the Office of Education and Data Management by electronic (disk), hard copy or email format during the calendar year.

These reports are then used to gather information on such items as the numbers and types of fires, numbers of EMS calls, causes of fires, numbers of civilian injuries and deaths related to fires, fire service injuries and deaths, and much more.  

Participation in the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) and the Connecticut Fire Incident Reporting System (CFIRS) gives the Fire Departments the ability to apply for the Federal Firefighter Grant Program.
