Davidson Fire Department launches Community Connect program 

Nov. 4. The Davidson Fire Department has launched  the Community Connect program, a regional effort to enhance the safety of town residents and their property. 

 Community Connect is a free, secure, and easy to use platform that allows people to share critical information about their households to aid first -esponders and emergency response personnel when responding to an emergency call.

“By providing information that a homeowner feels is important for the fire department to know in case of an emergency, firefighters can better protect both life and property when called upon,” said Fire Chief Reuben Fitzgerald.

How to participate

 Those interested in participating create a secure online account and enter the information that is most critical to them. Information can include property details, specifics with respect to individuals (how to locate occupants, who to contact, or special needs of certain individuals, for example), or pet details. Homeowners keep that information updated, and the fire department will always have access to the most current data. 

 Residents and business owners can go to the link here to create an account for their household or business and read specifically about account security.  FAQs can be found here. Details may also be found at the Davidson Fire Department website at www.townofdavidson.org/fire.
