California Incident Data and Statistics Program (CalStats)

Formerly known as CAIRS

CalStats is a statewide emergency incident data collection program that analyzes and distributes statistical information reported by fire departments throughout the state. This includes collecting National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) data from each fire department in California on behalf of the United States Fire Administration (USFA-FEMA). CalStats complies with Health and Safety Code 13110.5 to provide fire data and information to the fire community, and as a resource for the public. The data collected by CalStats includes such information as numbers of fires, causes of fires, types of fires, and locations of fires.
