The Maine Office of State Fire Marshal maintains MEFIRS in conjunction with the Maine EMS office. MEFIRS is the statewide system that contains both Fire and EMS reporting systems in one location. For questions on EMS reporting, please contact Maine EMS.

In 2017, our free state fire reporting process is transitioning to an online reporting system (MEFIRS) developed by ImageTrend. To view the MEFIRS Elite system specifications, please select the following link: Elite specifications (PDF, 4 pages, 584 KB). Maine fire departments with existing NFIRS accounts can still use the USFA NFIRS 5.0 software to do reports during this transition, but they will be required to move fully to the MEFIRS system later in 2017. Our office will no longer support the USFA NFIRS software, so no new NFIRS accounts will be activated. Fire departments need to report fire incidents either by exporting data files from a third-party software to Michelle Mason Webber, or by having a MEFIRS account. Please contact Michelle Mason Webber at (207) 626-3873 for more information.

The following abilities have been purchased by Maine State Fire Marshal Joseph Thomas for the MEFIRS fire reporting. Many of these abilities are still in development by ImageTrend, and Michelle will email the Fire Agency Administrators when they have been tested and are available for departments to use.
