TEXFIRS uses the NFIRS 5.0 system to manage incident reporting. Data submitted to TEXFIRS is forwarded to the national NFIRS. Incident reporting in Texas is not mandatory; however, documenting incidents helps provide data that can be used to prioritize training, identify resource needs, and help with planning.
