Community Connect is a free, secure, and easy-to-use platform that allows you to share critical information about your household or business that will aid first responders and emergency response personnel when responding to your property
What information can I provide?
Any information you provide through Community Connect is completely voluntary and based on what you are comfortable sharing. We made it easy for you to know what may be important by organizing your secure portal into buckets of information you can enter:
How secure is my data?
Data that you provide Community Connect is secure and used only for the purpose of better serving you during emergency situations. Your information is never used for any other purpose. All logins are password protected with bank-level encryption and security
Does this information stay with Orange Beach or does it go into a national or federal information network?
The information you opt to share is stored in First Due's software database (First Due is the program developer of Community Connect) and they do not share or sell any information. First Due is the leading software partner to some of North America's largest Emergency Service organizations. We have a very limited number of local program administrators (currently 4) who do have access to information, however, our responders only receive the information if they are dispatched to your address and do not have access to it after their emergency response.
You have complete control over the medical and occupancy information you choose to provide. Community Connect does not require any specific information, only what you are comfortable with sharing. Community Connect will never request personal information such as social security numbers, driver's license numbers, credit card information, etc.
Why doesn't everyone in my neighborhood have this?
They probably don't know about it! Help us get the word out by telling others and inviting us to come to your next HOA meeting or neighborhood event. We can help get each household signed up individually or as a group. All you have to do is fill out an event request form using the tab below and we will get in contact with you shortly
