The saying goes, 'experience is the best teacher.' The Firefighter Near Miss Reporting System is an integrated learning environment that enables fire and EMS personnel to turn their near misses into lessons beyond their individual departments. Tools include a searchable database of near miss reports, packaged as training modules; weekly Report of the Week (ROTW) email and podcast, data compilations that identify firefighter hazard and safety trends; and more.

Through the program, firefighters and EMS personnel can share their near-miss experiences in the field in a voluntary, confidential, non-punitive and secure way. They can also find training resources, gleaned from the collected real-world experiences, that help responders apply lessons learned and leading safety practices in their own departments.
