CURRENT EMERGENCY STATUS
The Boulder Office of Emergency Management posts all current emergency situations in Boulder County.
EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
Public safety agencies in Boulder County use a joint mass notification system that allows residents of the county and all of the cities within Boulder County to be notified of an emergency situation in a variety of ways, including by cell phone, by home or work phone, by text messaging and via e-mail.
The system will be used to notify residents about imminent threats to health and safety such as the need to evacuate due to a wildfire or take other appropriate actions in the event of a flash flood or other critical law enforcement activity. The alerts will come in from 911Alert@bouldercounty.org. The service is free to members of the public, except for any text messaging charges associated with your cell phone provider.
Residents of the county and all cities within Boulder County who wish to receive alerts do need to sign up for this system. If any of the information changes, residents are responsible for updating their profile on the web site.
Community members who choose not to add additional lines or cell phone information will continue to receive notifications on their home landlines.
