Iowa FireBridge


   ImageTrend has a newly implemented, web-based, statewide fire reporting system called Iowa Fire Bridge. The Iowa Fire Bridge will provide over 875 Iowa based fire departments with the ability to input their fire run reports. The report writer features will allow these fire departments to tailor their reports to meet their specific needs. Fire departments will also be able to enter fire inspection reports and training documentation.
   The Division of State Fire Marshal (SFM), established in 1911, is the oldest of the fire divisions within the Iowa Department of Public Safety. SFM was created to collect statistics on fire in Iowa and to develop fire safety regulations. Through promotion and enforcement of fire safety regulations, building code provisions, arson investigation, and firefighter training, the four Bureaus’ which comprise this division continue to have responsibility for reducing the loss of life and property by fire. The four Bureau’s include the Fire Prevention Bureau, the Arson and Explosives Bureau, the Building Code Bureau, and the Fire Service Training Bureau.
