NFIRS 5.0 Module ‘Civilian Fire Casualty’

Description: Provides report data for injuries and/or fatalities to civilians (or responder not in the Fire Service.) Use the ‘EMS Patient Module’ if fire was not the cause.

This module is NOT optional it is NOT ‘department use’; meaning it’s contents are used by FEMA NFIRS reports.
