National Fire Department Census Database

Request for Comments: National Fire Department Census

This collection seeks to identify fire departments in the U.S. to compile a database related to demographics, capabilities, and activities. The database will be used to guide USFA programmatic decisions and provide information to the public. Comments must be submitted on or before February 2, 2009. Read Federal Register Notice

The National Fire Department Census Database provides an online address listing of U.S. fire departments registered with USFA as well as some basic information about each fire department. The purpose of the census, which is ongoing, is to create a national database for use by USFA to conduct special studies that will guide program decision-making and to improve direct communication with individual fire departments. Our colleagues in the fire protection and prevention communities, allied professions and the general public will be able to use the database for similar purposes.
