Fire Service - Reporting Incidents

Why should I report my incidents to the Office of State Fire Marshal?

  • Every Chief is required by statute to provide the Office of State Fire Marshal with a full report of every fire occurring within their jurisdiction within seven days (ORS 476.210).
  • Your agency's data is an important part of the Oregon fire picture. NFIRS data is used to demonstrate the importance of the work that fire service does, ensuring that those inside and outside the industry will better understand the fire service's role and value in each community. This translates into more resources and financial support for the fire service.
  • We, and outside agencies, use incident data to educate the public in fatality and injury prevention, property protection, and the range of services fire agencies provide.
  • Your department uses data to measure the effectiveness of its operations, resource allocations, and training needs, as well as to apply for grants.
All fire departments in Oregon are required to report fire and hazardous materials incidents based on the NFIRS 5 standards.
