Firefighter Near Miss Reporting System

The Firefighter Near Miss Reporting System is an integrated learning environment that helps fire department personnel turn shared lessons learned into actions that are applied.

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.
