The New Hampshire Fire Incident Reporting System (NHFIRS) is operated by the NH State Fire Marshal’s Office pursuant to the requirements set forth in RSA 153:11. Each fire department is required to submit their emergency incident data to the State Fire Marshal Office on a monthly basis. The e-mail address to submit your data to has been changed to NHFIRS@dos.nh.gov.
NHFIRS is an integral part of the larger National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) operated by the US Fire Administration (USFA), part of the US Department of Homeland Security. Data submitted by local fire departments is captured by the NHFMO and sent up to the National Fire Data Center (NFDC) operated by the USFA.
NFIRS is a critical component in the USFA goal to "Fight Fires with Facts." In these days of shrinking budgets and increasing demands being placed upon the fire service, accurate information is essential to decision makers. This Web page is dedicated to providing you with the latest information and support on incident reporting. The NHFMO has a full-time person dedicated to the success of this program. Should you have any questions regarding the program please feel free to contact us.
