When residents create a citizen opt-in account, they choose how they want to receive emergency alerts. All landline phones are automatically in the system. If you would like to receive emergency alerts on your cell phone, text device or email, it is important that you register! Residents can provide multiple points of contacts, multiple addresses in Larimer County including your home, school, and work, as well as set language preferences by registering with NOCO Alert HERE.

Did You Know?

Emergency alerts are geographically based. Public Safety officials working the emergency event will determine the area that is under imminent threat and request that an emergency alert be sent to that specific area. Emergency alerts are not sent countywide! To learn more about how you can receive all emergency alerts sent in Larimer County, follow the link Below.
