Community Connect adds COVID-19 section to aid First Responders

The platform has been implemented throughout Kitsap County

Community Connect, a platform used in Kitsap County for residents to share information with First Responders, has added a new section dealing with COVID-19.

When First Responders head to a call, they use the information provided voluntarily by residents — such as property information, potential hazards, and number of occupants, including pets — to best respond to the emergency.

Community Connect now has a section for questions regarding the health of the members of the household, including whether or not they have tested positive for COVID-19. This allow responders to take the proper precautions during the coronavirus health crisis.
