GFD Requests Home Data for Improved Response

Gallatin Fire Department Community Connect Website

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

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
