This is a great question. I was just discussing this with my colleagues last week. Basically, it is left to the person reviewing a report (me) to determine if it is an incident versus a near miss in my dept. However, I want to capture more near misses. We came up with the statement below, which may have been taken and edited from something found on the great www. I would love some feedback from this group.
all unplanned fires or other precursors to actual incidents, whether or not an injury or other damage occurred

Seeking to not reinvent the wheel, does anyone have a near-miss reporting form they like? I have one but I'm not happy with it.
