Sign up for Community Connect

The Kannapolis Fire Department encourages the public to signup for the new Community Connect Program. This free program allows residents and business owners to share valuable information that may be needed by firefighters in the case of an emergency. The public can register their information online.

Residents can provide details about their home, family members, pets, medical needs and more. If there is an emergency call to the home, firefighters will be able to access the information as they are on their way to the scene enabling them to be better prepared to assist.

For example, you register your home located at 123 Main Street and give us the information your elderly mom is typically in the back bedroom with two pets. An emergency happens and you call 911.  Upon arrival firefighters will be able to assess if everyone is out of the house or if they need to immediately access the back bedroom based on the information you have provided.

Business owners can provide similar information about their location.

The opportunity to sign up for Community Connect is free and your information is valid for a six-months. Every six months you will receive email notifications asking you to update the information or you will be removed from the database. This ensures the information is current in case you move, your family or business status changes and so forth.

Community Connect is a secure platform and information the public provides will only be used for the purpose of providing assistance during emergency situations. All logins and passwords are protected.
