Overview

The Office of Education and Data Management (OEDM) is responsible for maintaining Connecticut's statistics for the U.S. Fire Administration’s (USFA) database for the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS). The NFIRS data provides fire information at the local, state and national levels, and assists fire service agencies and public officials in identifying fire-related problems and trends.  The information is used in the design of fire prevention/public education programs, fire codes, product research and safety.

Our office works with each of the 256 fire jurisdictions in Connecticut to ensure that each jurisdiction’s data is correctly coded and uploaded to the national database.
