Incident Report Request

Incident Reports are records of the details related to an incident the Calgary Fire Department (CFD) has attended. The types of calls that we attend include fires, motor vehicle collisions and medical incidents.

Who can request a report?

These reports are usually requested by insurance companies, law offices and members of the public. Whoever submits the request for the report is responsible for the $88 Report Fee, we do not offer third- party billing.

You can submit a request for a report through 311 Online Services by selecting “Fire Dept – Incident Report Request” or by calling 311 and opening a “CFD – Incident Report Request”.

What information do I need to get a report?

You must provide the following information in order to get a report:

If you are submitting an online request, fill out the Authorization for Patient Care Report (PCR) Release form prior to submitting your request so that you can attach it directly to the 311 request. 

If the request was created over the phone, fax the form to 403-243-9947.

After you submit the request

Once the report is ready it will be mailed to the address you listed in the 311 service request along with the invoice for the report. To comply with the FOIP and the Personal Privacy Act as well as any appropriate internal policies, all records and photos are edited of confidential and personal information before being released.
