      GRFD Unveils New Beta Test Dashboard
      Welcome to our new GRFD Dashboard! This interactive feature is updated monthly and shows the emergency incident activity for the GRFD. Categories are broken down into standard National Fire Incident Reporting segments with a brief description discussing what types of incidents can be found in their respective category. In addition to current year data, you have the ability to compare to the same time frame from the previous year to look for trends. We hope you enjoy the information and welcome any feedback which can be sent to in the strategic planning office.
