NFIRS Coding : Cancellations
How do I code a canceled en route (disregard)?
We code NFIRS “as is, not as toned”, so a cancellation (or disregard) is of interest only if the tone results in fire department action.
Per NFIRS Help Desk: If an incident is canceled before units respond there is no NFIRS incident to record.
If units respond and are canceled en route, then code as 611 – Dispatched & Canceled En Route.
Do not confuse with ‘Unable to Locate – UTL’
Do not confuse a cancellation, even on scene, with Unable to Locate (UTL).
