Community Connect adds COVID-19 section to aid First Responders

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.

Click here to enter your address where you will be directed to the department that serves your area. Community Connect has been implemented in Kitsap, King and Pierce Counties, as well as some agencies in Thurston County.
