NFIRS 5.0 Element: ‘Incident Controlled Date Time’

Définition : The actual month, day, year, and time of day when the fire is brought under control or the incident is stabilized and does not require additional emergency resources. “Controlled” is the time when the incident commander determines that the fire will not escape from its containment perimeter.
Purpose : The time spent stabilizing a fire provides fire department management with the information needed to analyze the duration patterns of different types of fires. This can assist in determining service demand and costs for resource allocation.
Entry : Enter the month, day, year (mm/dd/yyyy), and time that the incident was controlled. If the date is the same as the Alarm date, check or mark the corresponding box; do not reenter the date. However, if the incident extended (from the Alarm time to the Controlled time) through midnight, do not check or mark the box; instead, enter the date.
