Can I import data from another system into Emergency Reporting?


Emergency Reporting can import data into your account to greatly speed up the setup and configuration process. NFIRS or combined Personnel and Apparatus (DEP) imports have to be completed prior to your first login to reduce the occurrence of duplicate data entries. NFIRS imports from as far back as 2003 up to present day is free, provided that the received files are in the proper NFIRS text file format and do not require data manipulation pre-import by Emergency Reporting staff.
