The Gallatin Fire Department has launched an online self-reporting system called “Community Connect” where residents can enter information about their homes giving first responders critical information during an emergency response. The information is similar to what a 9-1-1 dispatcher would request, except the fire department would have this information before an emergency call. Community Connect for Gallatin residents can be found at www.gallatintn.gov/connect.
The system requests information such as bedroom locations, Knox Box location, gate code, gas shut-off location, water shut-off location, electric shut-off location, occupants with functional needs, pets & farm animals, special hazards in the household and contact information. Community Connect is also a portal to apply for a burn permit and register a smoke alarm system.
Your household information will never be shared or used for anything other than Gallatin emergency services. Community Connect is a free cloud-based program that does not require downloading an app. All logins are password protected with bank-level encryption and security.
For more information on Community Connect and other initiatives of the Gallatin Fire Department, contact the Fire Marshal Mark Hall at 615-452-2771 or email email@example.com.
