Martin County: Residents and Businesses Encouraged to Create Life Safety Profiles
Martin County Fire Rescue – building a safer community through prevention, preparedness, and response
STUART, Fla (April 15, 2022) – In honor of Public Safety Telecommunicators week, Martin County Fire Rescue reminds residents to utilize a new tool, Community Connect, designed to enable rescue personnel to respond more efficiently and effectively. Responding to emergencies requires detailed information and effective communication, which can be difficult for callers during an emergency. Community Connect streamlines the process, helping first responders from the initial call through on-site response.
Community Connect is a secure, easy-to-use platform by public safety company, First Due, that allows residents and businesses to share critical information with emergency services personnel. With both residential and business portals, Martin County Fire Rescue telecommunicators and responders will have access to lifesaving resources and documents such as evacuation procedures, occupant rosters, hazardous material lists and more. Additionally, designated contacts at properties that join the program will receive immediate alerts via text message when first responders are dispatched to the address.
“We are always looking for ways to better serve the citizens in Martin County. For this reason, we are reminding residents of this important program to protect our residents and their property in the most effective way possible. By providing information about your household or business that you feel is important for us to know about at the time of an emergency, we can ensure you and everything you care about is protected to the best of our ability,” said Fire Chief Chad Cianciulli.
Community Connect is completely voluntary; residents and business owners can decide which information they are comfortable sharing by creating a profile and entering property and occupant information, which is then made available to emergency responders at the time of dispatch
Data within Community Connect is secure and is used only for the purpose of better serving the community during emergency situations. If you are a resident or business owner in Martin County, please visit www.communityconnect.io/info/fl-martincounty to find out more information and register your household or business today.
