MEFIRS 5.0 System Features
The Maine Office of State Fire Marshal maintains the Maine Fire Incident Reporting System (MEFIRS). MEFIRS is the statewide system for tracking fire related emergencies and incidents. MEFIRS is designed as a tool for fire departments to report and maintain computerized records of fires and other fire department incidents in a uniform manner.
The Maine Fire Incident Reporting System utilizes the NFIRS 5.0 software application provided free of charge through the United States Fire Administration. Additional information and user registration information can be obtained through the MEFIRS State Administrator at Michelle.Mason@maine.gov, or through the USFA/NFIRS website at User Registration.
NOTE: The U.S. Fire Administration released NFIRS 5.0 version 5.9.5 on December 30, 2014. Users with older versions of the USFA software will be required to download and install the USFA NFIRS version 5.9.5 software. The USFA software is available to active status users after login on the NFIRS User Section, https://www.nfirs.fema.gov/NFIRSWebTools/UserServices/logon.do?destination=/UserServices/home/userHome.do. Users of the USFA Client software version 5.9.4 or 5.9.2 will be prompted to upgrade to version 5.9.5 upon login to the on-line system following the release. The update process for off-line users will require backing up their local database (e.g., NFIRSdatav54.mdb) and performing a “user injection”. Details about installing the update can be found in the "Read Me" text file located at: https://www.nfirs.fema.gov/_download/NFIRSv595/readme.txt.
