Eastside Fire & Rescue
announces Community Connect, a free, secure and easy to use platform that
allows you to share critical information about your household that will aid
first responders and emergency response personnel when responding to your
residence. EF&R partnered with First Due Size
Up to be the first fire department in King County to utilize Community Connect
within the community.
This is a website focused on
protecting residents and their property in the most effective way possible
during an incident or major disaster.
‘We are always looking for ways
to better serve our community,” Eastside Fire & Rescue Chief Jeff Clark
said. “By providing information about your household that you feel is important
for us to know about at the time of an emergency, we can ensure you and
everything you care about is protected to the best of our ability.”
Connect is a free, secure and easy-to-use website that allows residents to
share critical information about their household to aid first responders to
respond more efficiently and effectively to emergency calls.
Residents can create a profile, then enter critical property and occupant information, which is then made available to public safety agencies at the time of dispatch.
Data is 100%
secure and used only for better serving the residents during emergency
is voluntary, and residents can decide what information they are comfortable
sharing, including a
point of contact, pets in the home, any special hazards, any occupants with
special needs, and meeting place for family members in the event of a fire. The
program also allows for burn permits to be completed online.
Community Connect is available for residents within the service area of Eastside Fire & Rescue. For more information and to sign up, https://firstduesizeup.com/cc/eastside/.
