Fire reporting supports fire prevention activities including:
- Developing public education materials and programs
- Researching trends
- Identifying emerging risks
- Updating, legislation, regulations and codes
Fire reporting also provides data for the Office of the Fire Commissioner’s annual fire loss report.
Fire departments, insurance companies, the real estate industry, architects, building designers, building inspection departments, academic and medical researchers, and government agencies also use the fire reporting data for a variety of policy, planning and research purposes.
