Many residents and business owners were notified when flood water hit the city earlier this month through the city’s emergency notification system. If your contact information has changed or you have never signed up please visit http://www.ci.longmont.co.us/police/massnotification.htm and register on the Everbridge system.
Who should sign up? Anyone living within the City of Longmont limits who no longer have a landline in their home (a landline, main line or fixed-line is a telephone line which travels through a metal wire or optical fiber and does not require power for it to work). If you own additional communication devices i.e. cell phones, VoIP(voice over Internet protocol), email, etc. you will want to sign up for this service as it provides a number of additional ways in which emergency information can be disseminated quickly. If your service provider is Cricket, you can register but can not receive text messages.
This is available in other BOULDER COUNTY cities/towns/unincorporated areas by going to your local municipal/town/county website and checking for the link on their website. If you can not find it on their website, contact your local government office.
Who does not need to sign up? If the only form of communication you have is a landline phone, and you don't want to receive messages on any other device, you do not need to sign up for this service as you are already attached to an emergency notification system through the City of Longmont and/or Boulder County 911 services.
When will the emergency notification system be used? 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, hazardous spills or other emergencies. It may also be used in situations where a child or adult is missing who is in need of medical attention. The alert will originate from [email protected]
