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 ‘Location Type’.
|Relational Edit Rule 6||Intersection Elements.|
Here are the NFIRS codes for the ‘Location Type’ element, including any “other” values in case none of the preselected choices match:
|In Front Of||3|
|US National Grid||7|
A few NFIRS elements are reused accross a number of transactions, but typically the value is captured by one transaction only.
|Element Type||Coded Field - The coded field relating to an entry in the code table. Most coded fields allow for Plus+ One codes. For these fields the expected length of the coded entry is depicted as (National length OR Plus+ One length). Only fields with this notation in the expected length column allow for Plus+ One definitions. If the user has not provided information, an empty field should be transmitted.|
