Also known as: ‘controlledDateTime’
Definition: The actual month, day, year, and time of day when the fire is brought under control or the incident is stabilized and does not require additional emergency resources. ‘Controlled’ is the time when the incident commander determines that the fire will not escape from its containment perimeter.
Purpose: The time spent stabilizing a fire provides fire department management with the information needed to analyze the duration patterns of different types of fires. This can assist in determining service demand and costs for resource allocation.
Entry: Optional, except for when reporting a Wildland Fire.

NFIRS 5.0 edit requirement validation rules are provided to ensure NFIRS data is consistent and correct for the fire/reporting concepts that are being modeled. Edit requirements determine use and values for fields / elements. These are the rules for ‘Incident Controlled Date Time’.
|Edit Requirement Rule Basic.E1.Containment||Content||Exposure Number Above Zero.|
NFIRS 5.0 relational edit validation rules are provided to ensure NFIRS data is consistent and correct for the fire/reporting concepts that are being modeled. Relational edits determine relationships between multiple fields / elements. These are the rules for ‘Incident Controlled Date Time’.
|Relational Edit Rule 27||Controlled before Cleared.|
A few NFIRS elements are reused accross a number of transactions, but typically the value is captured by one transaction only.
