Requirement for Apparatus
NFIRS requires responders to leave the station, and go en route from the station for an incident to be an NFIRS reportable incident; which requires apparatus for transport. Provide apparatus for your NFIRS reportable incidents.

NFIRS Resource Module
The NFIRS resource module has a hierarchy of apparatus transactions, and one or more firefighter sub-transactions - one for each firefighter that responded on that apparatus.
NOTE: Without apparatus, Responserack cannot provide the NFIRS resources module, and hence NFIRS looks for 6 individual numbers. You can add these manually, via the basic module form, but it is easier / better to just add the apparatus.
- Suppression Apparatus #
- EMS Apparatus #
- Other Apparatus #
- Suppression Personnel #
- EMS Personnel #
- Other Personnel #
You can provide these numbers on the basic module, but it is more typical to enter the apparatus.
