Near Miss

The National Fire Fighter Near-Miss Reporting System is a voluntary, confidential, non-punitive and secure reporting system with the goal of improving fire fighter safety. By collecting and analyzing information on near-miss events, improvements can be made in command, education, operations and training. The reporting system is funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. The program was originally funded by DHS and Fireman's Fund Insurance Company.

Submitted reports are reviewed by fire service professionals. Identifying descriptions are removed to protect your identity. The report is then posted on this web site for others to use as a learning tool.

There are three main goals:
  1. To give firefighters and EMTs the opportunity to learn from each other through real-life experiences;


  2. To help formulate strategies to reduce the frequency of firefighter/EMT injuries and fatalities; and


  3. To enhance the safety culture of the fire and emergency service.
The CVVFA Emergency Responder Safety Institute asked our Chief Instructor Ron Moore to review hundreds of Near Miss reports that involve firefighter/EMTs at highway incidents. Thanks to our friends at National Fire Fighter Near-Miss Reporting System we have an exclusive arrangement to allow the readers of Respondersafety.com directly access the roadway reports. Funding for this project was provided by the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program at the Department of Homeland Security.
