The Fatality and Injury Reporting System Tool (FIRST) is a web‐based tool that allows users to query the motor vehicle crash data collected in NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis and Reporting System (FARS) and General Estimates System (NASS‐GES)/Crash Report Sampling System (CRSS). This tool has recently replaced the previous NHTSA data query tool, and continues to expand.  Users can create personalized queries for dozens of crash, vehicle, person, driver, occupant, pedestrian and pedalcyclist variables and hundreds of variable categories.  Key improvements under FIRST include:

  • 15 years of data available
  • Addition of injury and property damage crash data from CRSS and NASS: GES.
  • Upgraded GIS crash location maps, searchable by address
  • Multiple ways to report data: Table, Univariate and Panel Charts
  • Search by Vehicle Make and Model
  • Upgraded export functions to pdf, rtf (MS Word) and csv (excel) will benefit end users who will be able to seamlessly export their custom query results to presentations or other analytic tools.
  • Download crash records (case listings) for single year FARS queries
