The 2012 Minnesota Fire Incidents Reports are due Feb. 28.
(Published Feb 19, 2013)
The Office of the State Fire Marshal this week sent out notice that several fire departments have not yet filed 2012 Minnesota Fire Incidents Reports. The reports are due by Feb. 28.
These reports can be filed online. New users can get a user ID and password from the State Fire Marshal Division by calling (651) 201-7209.
Fire reporting is mandated by Minnesota Statutes, section 299F.04, subdivision 3, which states:
“Subd. 3. Reporting and records requirements. The officer making investigation of fires occurring in cities, statutory cities and towns shall forthwith notify the state fire marshal and shall, within one week of the occurrence of the fire, furnish to the state fire marshal a written statement of all the facts relating to the cause and origin of the fire and such further information as may be called for by the blanks furnished by the state fire marshal. The state fire marshal shall keep a record of all fires occurring in the state, together with all facts, statistics, and circumstances, including the origin of the fires, which may be determined by the investigation provided by this chapter. These statistics shall be at all times open to public inspection.”
