Louisiana Fire Incident Reporting System (LFIRS)

A Part of the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS)

This section of the Louisiana State Fire Marshal's office collects and maintains data submitted from Louisiana fire departments and compiles statistics on all incidents to which a fire department responds in an effort to determine the impact of these incidents, especially fire incidents, on the lives of our citizens and property in Louisiana. LFIRS (NFIRS) is the program through which this data is collected.

In addition, by collecting data on both fire and non-fire response efforts of our fire departments, we can identify personnel, equipment, and training needs of our fire service and document the full impact our fire service has in our communities.

The LFIRS State Program Manager is Cindy Gonthier. If you have questions or need assistance regarding LFIRS reporting, please contact Cindy at the State Fire Marshal's office:

8181 Independence Blvd.
Baton Rouge, LA 70806
(800) 256-5452
(225) 925-1716

Email incident data files to . (If you are using the Federal Client Tool online, your incidents are automatically recorded in the State/National database.) Do not send LFIRS reports directly to Cindy Gonthier.

Note: For help in understanding The Monthly Incident Count reports, please view the attached explanation by clicking on the image below:

The Monthly Incident Count reports show ALL departments deemed "active" in the NFIRS/LFIRS database whether or not the department is participating. To be considered participating/reporting consistently, a department should show a count in at least one category for each month of the year.

Should your department experience a month in which there were no response calls, a "No Activity" report must be recorded for that month. Refer to question 6 on the FAQ page or contact the LFIRS State Program Manager for assistance.
