Improve communications when sharing fire data with provisions in the 2011 NFPA 901.

The 2011 NFPA 901: Standard Classifications for Incident Reporting and Fire Protection Data provides the latest guidelines to help fire departments and other fire protection organizations effectively share data with other agencies. It provides a common language and definitions that define and describe elements and classifications used by many fire departments in the United States and other countries to describe fire damage potential and experience during incidents.

Topics covered include:

  • Pre-incident environments, such as fire defense features of a structure
  • Fire and other emergency incidents
  • Post-incident damage assessments
  • Fire service data

This document also offers a classification system for data captured by automated databases. NFPA 901 does not provide guidelines for a reporting system or related forms. (Softbound, 154 pp., 2011)
