On Tuesday, August 30, Arcadia Fire Department Chief Briggs and Deputy Chief Suen assisted seniors to sign up for the Community Connect program. It’s free, it’s easy and we encourage everyone to sign up and provide as much information about your household. By providing information about you and your household, first responders can better assist you.
