 Thank you for your patience as IaR worked to release the much-anticipated NFIRS program.  It will be turned on for your department in a series of activations.  This is not yet open to all IaR users but will be turned on systematically for them over the next couple of weeks. 


Attached is a file for your review regarding the configuration and set up of the program.  Please note that it is currently designed to run on Google Chrome but we will be releasing it to other browsers in the coming weeks.  There will be some more additions that are outlined in the attachment, including more reports than you will see when you first navigate to it.


As questions arise and if you notice any issues with it, please feel free to contact our Support team at  Thank you again for your patience as we worked to deliver a program that meets the reliability standards that we hold critical at IaR.  We very much appreciate your patience and will continue to work to provide you and your agency with the best system at the best value in the market.
