NFIRS is the world’s largest, national, annual database of fire incident information. Wyoming all other fortynine states and the District of Columbia report NFIRS data to the United States Fire Administration

On July 1, 2017 the Wyoming State Fire Marshal's Office transitioned to Emergency Reporting for the purpose of NFIRS data collection and reporting. Emergency Reporting (ER) accounts were created for every fire department and have been distributed to the county Fire Wardens for login dissemination. If you have not received your account information please contact your fire warden or DFPES at 307-777-7288 for this information.

35-9-109 (a) The county fire warden or chief of the fire department of a city, town, county or fire district shall investigate the cause, origin and circumstances of each fire occurring in the city, town, county or district that was reported or subject to emergency response, by which property has been destroyed or damaged.
