USFA Releases 2009 Fire Estimate Summary Series

The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) United States Fire Administration (USFA) recently issued the 2009 Fire Estimate Summary Series which presents basic information on the size and status of the fire problem in the United States as depicted through data collected in USFA's National Fire Incident Reporting System.

The data summary series was developed by USFA's National Fire Data Center and is further evidence of FEMA's commitment to sharing information with the American public, fire departments, and first responders around the country to help them keep their communities safe.

"Each fire estimate summary is a great resource for communities to quickly get basic data on fire issues that are currently impacting our nation's communities," said Glenn Gaines, acting U.S. Fire Administrator. "Please join with USFA in using the information presented in this series to help prevent further loss of life and property."

Individual summaries are issued as part of the Fire Estimate Summary Series and address the size of a specific fire or fire-related issue as well as highlight important data trends. As part of this series, seventeen summaries have been issued presenting basic information on the leading causes of residential building and nonresidential building fires, deaths, injuries, and dollar losses for 2009 and highlighting overall trends in these leading causes for the 5-year period of 2005 to 2009. Additional new and updated fire estimate summaries will be periodically released under this series as future year data become available.

The complete Fire Estimate Summary Series is available at www.usfa.dhs.gov/statistics/estimates. For further information regarding other statistical reports or any programs and training available at USFA, visit www.usfa.dhs.gov.
