Community Connect: Strengthening Safety Together in Baton Rouge!

Welcome to Baton Rouge Fire Department's Community Connect program – a groundbreaking initiative designed to enhance the safety and well-being of our vibrant community. This voluntary program empowers residents and business owners to actively contribute valuable information that can make a significant difference in emergency situations.

For Residents:

We understand the importance of every second in an emergency. By joining Community Connect, residents can share critical details that assist our dedicated firefighters in responding promptly and effectively. Whether it's the names and pictures of beloved pets, information on family members, or vital medical conditions, your input can be the key to a more tailored response.

For Business Owners:

Businesses play a crucial role in our community, and we value your commitment to safety. Through Community Connect, business owners can provide essential details such as after-hours key holders and emergency shutoff procedures. This information can be instrumental in ensuring a rapid and well-informed response during critical situations.

Key Features:
