We will no longer be posting updates to the LongmontOEM.com which was used heavily during the flood emergency. We are transitioning from emergency response to relief and recovery. Any further communications over the next several months and years related to disaster assistance, infrastructure repairs, housing, and recovery of our community will be found on the city's main website at http://www.ci.longmont.co.us/flood-info/.
Thank you to the Longmont Community for all of your assistance for pulling together and overcoming adversity during the September Flood. The city has received many acknowledgements from the public on a "job well done". They are grateful for the city's planning and emergency response. Here are a couple of examples of the types of comments that we've been receiving.
"Thank you. Thank you all for how you are handling this flood disaster. Especially thank the OEM,public workers, police, firemen, city leaders, volunteers. Everyone, really, thank you. OEM seems to have handled this beyond well given the circumstances; preparedness has paid off. Longmont water, power, and government preparations and wisdom can be seen. I am glad we moved here two years ago, to a community that comes together in disaster instead of falling apart. That has plans and is prepared; that paid extra taxes and got things done ahead of time. A community that strives to support itself and provide for itself and others in their time of need. Thank you for keeping us all safe and working so hard. Thank you." ~ JP of Longmont
"As a resident of Longmont’s Southmoor Park neighborhood, I want to thank the City of Longmont’s Public Works and Natural Resources Department for the leadership and foresight they showed over the past two years in making improvements to the Left Hand Creek channel between 287 and Pike Road for the purpose of flood mitigation. While the damage to the Southmoor Park neighborhood was significant, the destruction of property would certainly have been far worse without these improvements (it removed 185 houses from the flood plain). I completely believe that these improvements saved my home, and my street from sustaining significant damage. Thank you all for your service to our community and for making Longmont such a great place to live! " ~ AM of Longmont
"Thank you very much for keeping our neighborhoods safe and for the quick response to clean them after the flood. It was amazing to see the City and the faith community work together to respond. Great work. " ~ KS of Longmont
