The Chino Valley Fire District is launching a free online self-reporting program that allows residents to share critical information about their household prior to an emergency in order to help Fire District personnel and other public safety agencies respond more efficiently and effectively to incidents or major disasters.
Community Connect is a secure and easy to use application developed by First Due. Residents are individually able to decide what information they are comfortable sharing on the app. Residents simply create a profile and enter critical property and occupant information, which is then made available to first responders at the time of dispatch. Data provided by residents within Community Connect is 100% secure and is used only for the purpose of better serving the resident during emergency situations.
“When responding to a residence, there is often critical information that can assist in how we respond to an incident. Letting us know who the best point of contact is in case of an emergency, if you or your family members have functional needs that we should prepare for, or even if you have pets we should look out for, can really help us serve you in the most effective way possible when it matters most,” said Fire Chief Tim Shackelford.
Community Connect is now available for residents to create household profiles and begin using the service. The Fire District intends to listen to resident feedback and improve the service overtime.
