MEFIRS Open Forum recordings now available

Are you interested in learning more about the Maine EMS & Fire Incident Reporting System (MEFIRS) transition to the NEMSIS 3.5 data set? Do you want to see the expected run form changes, validation rule changes, data quality, and training opportunities? Do you have questions or feedback for the Maine EMS Data team?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you will be happy to know that Maine EMS has posted all of the MEFIRS open forum videos to YouTube for viewing at your convenience. These videos are recordings of the live meetings held every Tuesday from July 18 to August 15, 2023, where Maine EMS shared information and answered questions about the MEFIRS transition process. Maine EMS will continue to host these open forums every Tuesday through the end of November.

You can find the videos on the Maine EMS YouTube channel or by clicking on the links below:

We hope you find these videos helpful and informative. Please feel free to share them with your colleagues and friends who are interested in MEFIRS. If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to contact Maine EMS at
