About FireCARES

If fire department resources are deployed to match the risk levels inherent to hazards in the community, it has been scientifically demonstrated that the community will be far less vulnerable to negative outcomes in firefighter injury and death, civilian injury and death and property loss. FireCARES analyzes massive amounts of fire department and community data to identify whether resources are appropriately deployed to match a community's risk level. See the access policy for more details about access to the system and the list data available in FireCARES. Check out the User Guide for How-To tips.
