Ashland’s New Program – Ashland Community Connect to Serve Residents and Businesses

Ashland Community Connect…Together, building a safer community through prevention, preparedness and response

The City is continually looking for ways to better serve residents and business owners in Ashland. For this reason, the City is rolling out a new program called Community Connect to help protect residents and their property.

Community Connect is a free, secure and easy to use platform that allows citizens to share critical information about their household or business that will aid emergency response personnel when responding to someone in need. The platform is already being used successfully by other fire departments in Southern Oregon.

By providing household or business information that is important for First Responders to be aware of, the City can help ensure residents that the things they care about are protected to the best of the City’s ability. Visit communityconnect.io/info/or-ashland and enter the information that matters most in an emergency situation.  Examples of information that can be entered include:

  • Critical property information
  • Emergency contact information
  • Special needs
  • Information regarding pets

Data provided to Community Connect is secure and is used only for the purpose of better serving citizens of Ashland during emergency situations. Personal information is never used for any other purpose. All logins are password protected with bank level encryption and security.

Sign up today at communityconnect.io/info/or-ashland. It is easy and takes minutes to do! If you have questions about Community Connect, call 541.488.2770.

Please note: The Community Connect software is separate from the City’s Citizen Alert system that notifies citizens of an emergency. For emergency alerts and preparedness visit ashland.or.us/BetterPrepared.

 

“We are better together!”
