If there was an emergency in your neighborhood, how would you find out?
Many cities and counties have a reverse notification system, sometimes called reverse 911, that call your home phone when there is a fire, flood or other emergency situation. But did you know that in many places you can also sign up to get those notifications on your cell phone, e-mail and by text?
Adams County provides reverse 911 in partnership with ADCOM 911 to home landline phone numbers for residents of Bennett, Brighton, Commerce City, Northglenn and Unincorporated Adams County, including residents in the Adams County portion of Strasburg. In addition, residents can register for cell phone alerts through FirstCall. The following Adams County municipalities support their own independent notification systems: Arvada, Aurora, Federal Heights, Thornton and Westminster. http://alertregistration.com/adamscountyco
Broomfield and Jefferson counties uses the CodeRed system to send out emergency alerts. **Residents who have previously registered their phone numbers with the FirstCall system must re-register under the new notification system to make certain their information is correct. http://Your911.net
Douglas County uses the CodeRed system to alert residents to situations such as police activity in an area, a lost child (Amber Alert), wildfires, or any other incident in which residents in the immediate area and surrounding areas would need to take appropriate steps to safeguard life and property. **If you registered with the old Everbridge system, you need to register again. http://www.dcsheriff.net/emergency-mass-notification-system/
