The Storm Lake Fire Department has launched a new online tool to help keep citizens safe…called Community Connect Program. Area residents can log on to www.communityconnect.io/info/ia-stormlake and create a free account. From there, you’ll be able to fill out contact information, including your home address. This way, it will be easier for the Fire Department to assist you as quickly as possible in case of an emergency.
The site is secured with only the Storm Lake Fire Department having access to it. They have been working on this system for the last six months. The Community Connection Program can be used by all areas that the SLFD covers including Storm Lake, Lakeside, Truesdale, and rural areas of Hayes, Washington, and Grant townships. In addition, there will also be a Spanish translation feature.
