USFA Releases Topical Reports on Fire Department Runs

As part of its Topical Fire Report Series, the U.S. Fire Administration has issued two special reports examining fire department responses to all types of emergency situations. The two reports, the "Fire Department Overall Run Profile" and the "Fire Department Fire Run Profile," were developed by the National Fire Data Center.

"Throughout the history of our nation, fire departments have, and continue to provide the necessary response and services to the communities they protect," said U.S. Fire Administrator Greg Cade. "In today's community and emergency environment, fire protection is only one of the many functions of a fire department. As in the past, today's firefighters are trained to handle all types of incidents, including EMS and will continue to prepare themselves for all types of emergencies, threats and vulnerabilities in the future."

To understand the full role fire departments play in a community, USFA said these reports explore fire department run activity as reflected in the 2004 National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) data.

The Fire Department Overall Run Profile--available at www.usfa.dhs.gov/downloads/pdf/tfrs/v7i4.pdf--looks at all types of fire department runs or calls including fire, whereas the focus of the Fire Department Fire Run Profile--available at www.usfa.dhs.gov/downloads/pdf/tfrs/v7i3.pdf--is strictly fire.

The short topical reports, USFA says, are designed to explore facets of the U.S. fire problem as depicted through data collected in NFIRS. Each topical report briefly addresses the nature of the specific fire or fire-related topic, highlights important findings from the data, and suggest other resources to consider for further information.
