Online Fire and Incident Reporting System (FIRS) and performance analysis was further extended this year to include:
- brigade incidents listings
- member response summary report
- incident injury summary report
- fire report status report
- fire report late completion report.
The 'hectares burnt' report was expanded to allow for comparison between multiple years and 'SDS reporting' now provides drill-down functionality to display individual incident and appliance details. Many of these reports have been linked to the Section 29 reporting to provide further evidence of automatic data provided. These reports are available to CFA staff and brigade management teams in varying formats and are also available online to volunteers and staff.
Dollar Loss (from Structure Fire) Report
Table 13 shows total and median dollar loss for structure fires attended. The data is extracted from estimates included in completed primary fire reports by individual brigades.

|Total Dollar Loss||Median Dollar Loss|
|Outer Metro Norwest||363||181||$12,904,260||$4,000|
Containment to Room of Origin (Structure Fire) Report
Table 14 shows the total number of structure fires per area and summarises the number of incidents allocated to each of the flame damage categories in the fire reports. It then shows the percentage confined to room of origin.

|Outer Metro Norwest||2||33||72||40||2||66||18||30||1||264||66%|
4 The determination of structure fires in the 'Containment to Room of Origin' report refers only to building fires. The 'Dollar Loss' report also includes building fires confined to a container, for example a chimney or cooking equipment, and hence shows a larger total number of structure fire incidents.
