Fire Statistics System (FIRESTAT)
What is Firestat?
|The Fire Statistics System (FIRESTAT) is a U.S.
Department of Agriculture (USDA), Forest Service (FS) application used to
electronically enter, update, and delete required information on the
Individual Fire Report (form FS-5100-29) as required by FSH 5109.14, the
Individual Fire Report Handbook. The data is stored in the National
Interagency Fire Management Integrated Database (NIFMID) at the National
Information Technology center (NITC) in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Individual Fire Report provides timely statistical data and
information for both administrative purposes and managers to use in making
land and resource management decisions. The report is a record of
fire occurrence, related fire behavior conditions, and the suppression
actions taken by management. Data collected from fire reports can
enable management to monitor the program performance and plan the most
cost-effective fire management organization.
