PENNFIRS Online User Information and
NEW: The Office of the State Fire
Commissioner (OSFC) is pleased to announce our new partnership with Emergency
Reporting (emergencyreporting.com) to provide a web-based (Internet Accessible)
data entry tool; hereinafter referred to as the Pennsylvania Fire Information
Reporting System (PennFIRS) On-Line or PennFIRS On-Line.
Emergency Reporting will provide to each department a free
PennFIRS package (including maintenance agreements) to any fire department in
the state wishing to participate. PennFIRS On-Line meets all the basic National
Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS 5.0) criteria. All data entered by a fire
company/department should be submitted to OSFC and in turn will be forwarded to
NFIRS. Modules provided free of charge include the incident module, reports
module, my profile module, library module and administration module. Additional
modules may be purchased directly from Emergency Reporting.
NOTE: Effective July 1, 2015, current users of FH.Net
(Firehouse Software) will be responsible for all costs associated with continued
use of Firehouse products. For technical support, contact Firehouse Tech
Support directly at FH.NET@xerox.com
All fire departments have the option to continue using Firehouse
or any other software program they choose, or to switch to Emergency Reporting
by completing the online PennFIRS Registration Form below.
Departments that currently have no reporting capability will be
given a higher priority for initial approval. Training is available and can be
conducted through the internet using "webinars" or on-site by OSFC trainers.
For additional information, please contact your NFIRS State
Program Manager: Christine Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org at (717) 651-2202) or
Kraig Herman (email@example.com at (717)
