The Culver City Fire Department has been working closely with technology partner First Due to launch Community Connect, a free online application focused on increasing the protection of residents and their property during an incident or major disaster.
“Community Connect is a secure, easy-to-use platform that allows residents to share critical information about their household in order to aid the Culver City Fire Department in responding more efficiently and effectively. Ultimately Community Connect will greatly assist the City’s firefighters and paramedics in providing enhanced services to our community,” said Culver City Mayor Alex Fisch.
Community Connect is completely voluntary, and residents are individually able to decide which information they are comfortable sharing. Residents may choose to include information about emergency contacts, specific medical issues, disabilities, pets, and other information unique to their household. Residents simply create a profile and enter critical property and occupant information which is then made available to the Culver City Fire Department 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.
It’s free to participate in Community Connect. To learn more about the program and to create your profile, please visit Culver City Community Connect.
