Fires in Alberta are reported by safety codes officers certified in the fire discipline and by members of the insurance industry handling fire loss claims.
Fires are reported online, with paper report forms available as a backup. The Fire Electronic Reporting System (FERS) is accessed through the Municipal Affairs milenet system.
Fire reporting agencies can obtain secure access to FERS by signing a milenet agreement.
