We are always looking for ways to better serve Buncombe County. For this reason we are rolling out a new program to protect our residents and their property in the most effective way possible. Community Connect is a free, secure, and easy to use platform that allows you to share critical information about your household that will aid first responders and emergency response personnel when responding to your residence. By providing information about your household that you feel is important for us to know about at the time of an emergency, we can ensure you and everything you care about is protected to the best of our ability.
Completion of this form in no way guarantees that the registered individual will receive immediate or preferential treatment in a disaster. Individuals should maintain a personal emergency plan.
WHO should self-report?
Everyone should self-report. Even if you are asymptomatic or tested negative, it is important to let First Responders know your situation. If you are high-risk or have any access and functional needs, please also self-report so that emergency services can be better prepared to help during this crisis.
It is important for everyone to report regardless of age, health or suspicion of infection. Do your part and help your First Responders!
People who are considered high-risk from an age and health perspective or have access and functional needs should report.
Anyone who has tested positive, showing symptoms or has been in contact with anyone who has tested positive or has symptoms.
