Fire department reports are a record of all operational activities from the time the department is notified about the incident until they leave the scene. This vast amount of information becomes the foundation of a provincial fire report.
The fire department in command of the scene is responsible for submitting the fire report to OFC. A report is also required when a fire department responds to an incident at a neighbouring community including on First Nation property.
Required Reports & Due Date
Fire Reports - Due within 14 days of the occurrence. Fire departments must submit a report for:
All uncontrolled fires involving a structure, outdoor property, or vehicle;
All fires (controlled/uncontrolled) that violates by-laws regulations; and
Any incident that may result in a fire insurance claim.
Casualty Reports – Any injury or fatality directly resulting from the fire incident must be reported. A separate report is required for each victim. This includes both civilian and firefighter casualties. A person who succumbs to a fire injury within one year following the incident date will be updated to a fire fatality status.
