National Fire Incident Reporting System Elite (NFIRS Elite) https://www.imagetrendelite.com/Elite/?organizationId=iowa

The State Fire Marshal Division is working to move NFIRS reporting agencies from Fire Bridge V.2 system to Elite. To prepare, please make sure all your incidents in Fire Bridge V.2 are completed before you begin logging incidents in Elite.

With the move comes a few changes.  The website address will change, although you will still have access to the Fire Bridge V. 2 site. 

Approximately six months after the migration to Elite, you will no longer be able to add data to Fire Bridge V. 2, but you will continue to have access to view past incident reports.

You will also have the option to import your fire incidents from V.2 to Elite. 

The program remains free for your use to log your fire incidents and we encourage you to do so as completely and frequently as possible. Departments who continue to use other 3rd party software will still be able to import your data into Elite.

Sign up below to receive email notifications when updates are made to this website!

Further information will be provided regarding:

  1. Migration Wizard (complete BEFORE importing NFIRS legacy data)
  2. NFIRS Legacy Data import tool (READ CAREFULLY BEFORE IMPORTING)

NEW FIRE DEPARTMENT AGENCIES: To get your department set up in Elite, you will need to designate at least one Fire Department Administrator from your department.  (It is possible to have more than one Fire Department Administrator.)  To set up your Fire Department Administrator, please fill out and submit this form: Fire Department Administrator Application Form. Once your department has a Fire Department Administrator, that individual will be in charge of setting up additional members of your fire department with access and permissions.  Click here to view Department Permission Groups.
