Connecticut Fire Incidents Report

$179 / year

This dataset contains Connecticut Fire Department (CFD) Incidents as reported to the National Fire Department Incident Reporting System (NFIRS).

Complexity

Incidents reported by the Connecticut Fire Department (CFD) on the full range of their activities, from fire to emergency medical services (EMS) to equipment involved in the response.

After responding to an incident, fire department personnel complete one or more of the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) “modules.” The information in these modules describes the kind of incident responded to, where it occurred, the resources used to mitigate it, and how losses and other information designed specifically to understand the nature and causes of fire, hazardous material (HazMat), and emergency medical service (EMS) incidents. Information is also collected on the number of civilian or firefighter casualties and an estimate of property loss. The uniformity of definitions used in coding NFIRS fields makes aggregation of national data possible.

Each Incidence is assigned a 3 digit Incidence Type Code. The code describes the situation emergency personnel found when they arrived. Incidence Types are grouped into larger categories, called Series.
