Types of Reports
There are 2 types of reports that may be available following a fire department response to an incident -- Fire Incident Report and Fire Investigation Report.
The Fire Incident Report is completed by fire / rescue personnel to document a fire / rescue response.
When a Fire Investigator is called to an incident to determine the origin and cause of a fire, the investigator will complete a Fire Investigation Report. A Frederick County Fire Investigator does not respond to all fires, therefore, there may be only a Fire Incident Report available. There are times when a fire investigation report will not be released. These time are:
Identifying confidential informant information
Pending criminal prosecution
Sensitive nature of the investigation
Currently, there is no charge for fire reports and they will be released within 30 days of the request being submitted.
