National Fire Incident Reporting System
ImageTrend Elite


The State Fire Marshal Division has movee NFIRS reporting agencies from Fire Bridge V.2 system to Elite.

As of July 31, 2018, you will no longer be able to add data to Fire Bridge V. 2, but you will continue to have READ ONLY access to view past incident reports.

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.

Further information will be provided regarding:

  1. Migration Wizard (complete BEFORE importing NFIRS legacy data)
  2. NFIRS Legacy Data Import

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.
